It's a little fussy Kasy, and the flowers are proper slug caviar, but worth the effort in my opinion.

It's a small flower HB, but a real gem in my eyes!

Very beautiful! I'm still having major problems with snails and slugs, also.

Thanks Delonix! The slimey critters are a real pain at the moment.

I know the feeling. The snails and slugs ate all the leaves on my Pachystachys lutea.

Coffee grounds seem to be doing a good job of protecting the plants in the ground Delonix.

Meanie:

That's a great idea! I should get some free coffee grounds from Starbuck's Coffee.

Just drink more coffee (it gives me an excuse anyway)!

I haven't drank a cup of coffee in more than 25 years.
