Should I tear these out?


I have had these hostas for 6 years and every year this happens-I have tried eggshells and spraying. This is the area I would like to use for a small frog pond(eventually) and am wondering if I plant something else here will the new plants also look like this? My other plants (fern and hardy cyclamen) ae healthy and untouched. This part of the bed gets filtered morning light-aft. shade, and full evening light. Any suggestions on replacement plants? I would like something around the same height or up to 3 in. higher than the hostas.

    Put out small low bowls of beer. Slugs love beer and they crawl in an die. I realize this will take some maintenance but your hosts are otherwise pretty. Also, anything gritty is unappealing to their slimy body.

    Some of the damage could also be from fertilizer burn. I have just quit fertilizing and they seem to have liked that.
