What's going on?!??! I'm a new gardener, and just recently planted some hostas in my little garden. They look so beautiful, but yesterday I noticed a couple of them have holes in the leaves.

Have I done something to hurt them? :(

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm very new at this!

I'll give this a try. :( Do hostas generally attract slugs?

PS. I finally painted my office (although I didn't go with the yellow after all), and posted a picture of my Paris vignette. It's on the MSN site.

I have 3 hostas in an area approximately 12 x 4. There are other plants in here as well, do you need to know what they are? (I don't know the names of all of them).

Do the slugs actually climb up on the leaves and munch away???

Thanks Artsy, no I don't have pets, but the neighbour's cat is often over visiting us - does that count?
