Slugs v Campanula

We planted some new campanula plants recently on the top of our wall. Within 24hours they looked to have been eaten. At first I accused my husband of being 'secateur-happy' but this he denied.

What I want to know is - do slugs eat campanula? image

    I find slugs eat new growth of Campanula but seem not to like them too much. Vine weevil will also eat Campanula and love to hide under veg on warm walls.

    I'm a little ignorant here - what are 'keel slugs'? All I seem to see in our garden are giant slugs and then I'm straight out with my pot of salt! image

    IME slugs love certain Campanulas. Many a 'choice' variety has disappeared from my garden.

    I now have copper rings to put round the stems of emerging plants & that does seem to help. J.
