I am a new gardener (having had potted plants for many years), this being my second year with a small flower garden. This year I took a bit more time to plan what I would put in my garden, and someone told me that Little Leo Leopards Bane was a very easy plant to care for and great for beginners. I planted two small plants in my flower bed and one of them now has holes in almost all of the leaves. I was looking around the plant and on the leaves and stems for what was causing the holes and all I found was one lonely slug... what might be chewing my leaves and what can I do to prevent further damage? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
