    its not an injury twist, vitamin deficit maybe. It can be heredity.

    Hi everyone I'm back!! Been a busy few days here over the pond. Bash the blue splash roo has gone to his new home on Sunday, but sad but he's got a lovely new home on a farm and it's only 5 mins down the road so I can pop and see him anytime.

    Having a slug problem right now on an evening, there were hundreds of them over the last couple of nights. They are disgusting things :sick Have been killing them and sweeping well trying to sweep them up!! Stuck to the brush and shovel!! Had to resort to rubber gloves in the end to pick them up. I'm not a squeamish person or afraid to get my hands dirty but picking slugs with bare hands is ano for me.

    try putting a ring of diatomasour earth around your plants. Also another good trip take a pie pan (glass is best) pour a can of beer in it and leave in garden. Slugs will by pass your plants for the beer and then drown themselves in it. Sort of like some people I know.
