Today whilst out shopping with my wife we were looking at the bedding plants and perennials in our local B & m store she spotted a Delphinium and said wistfully how she would love to have one in the garden. She does understand from bitter experience that the poor plant would be a nice snack for the slugs if we planted it.
Subsequently I remembered seeing Aconitum "Bressingham Spire" in a garden and thinking how close it was in appearance to a Delphinium. Aconitum has a justified reputation for being very poisonous, but does the poison affect slugs and snails? Anyone grow Aconitums and do they suffer from slugs and snails?
