Rudbeckia seedlings

I am feeling really smug with myself as the Rudbeckia seeds that were sown on Monday are germinating already!  I used a heated propagator for the first time and am amazed with the speed of germination. I have never grown Rudbeckia before but have admired them in other people's gardens.  Can anyone tell me whether they are attractive to slugs?  I try to grow plants that the slugs don't feast on as I hate using slug pellets and also hate seeing all my tender loving care for plants being eaten by those horrid slimy insects a day or so after spending time planting them.

    Slugs and snails like the seedlings, but are not keen on the larger hairy plants.

    I use slug pellets on the benches in the greenhouse for seedlings, but  use slug pubs in the garden.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
