Dahlia

Hi, on Saturday morning when I checked my plants , I saw that one of my dahlias had been eaten by slugs or snails. It’s been a couple of days now and there’s no change. Will the dahlia grow again or not?

    Provided you can keep the slugs off, they will usually send up new shoots.  Dpn't give up yet. I find small pots filled with beer work well.  The slugs drown in it but snails don't seem as keen.

    Don't put so many pellets close to the plant. They will attract the slugs
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Thank you. I’ll try this!

    Thanks. I’ve gone out and moved them away from the plants now
