can anyone help me about SLUGS on my Day Lily's, I've never had them on anything before what do I do? Is it because of all the rain?

the Peony's and Lupines are gorgeous ,my red Peony had one bloom on it this year and my white one that was Mother's was just loaded with huge white blooms.

We replanted a Red Dogwood in the front yard, the directions told us to water well until roots are established,How do I know when that is?                                                                                               In the storms we've had lately one of my Asparagus Ferns got turned over and a long stem broke off ,I cut it in half ,sraped the stem and put it in Root Tone and stuck it in some rich soil to try and root it. i had done the same thing to a piece we broke off of our Wedding Cake Hydrangea when we planted it.I used the same procedure of scraping off the stem applying Root Tone and placed in rich soil it has been over 2 weeks since I did that to the Hydrangea cutting and it seems to be taking hold it's still nice and green.My beautiful Orange Gerber Daisy got flipped upside down by the wind I don't know if I can salvage him or not but will try to ,I also had a succulent basket get flipped upside down and I need to try to resore it the best I can ,maybe put it in a heavier pot. just wanted to say what's going on here,sorry to blab so long.

REgarding Dogwood problems:

We had a terrible drought 2 years ago and I think we are just seeing the damage now.  The bark is cracked, we have leaves but not many flowers and that may have been from the terrible winter. Our summer heat has been extremely hot the last two years also.  We are zone 5/6 in Indiana.

Help I trim my evergreen, but they are brown this is the second time it has happened, they came back the first time.

Anyone know what to do or is this normal.

thanks,Diane, I really appreciate the encouragement to try them anyway. they are such pretty flowers and this is my first effort with Columbines.

Arden thanks for the info on my Dogwood. Allthe native ones are growing like gangbusters but unfortunately our little pink one is so very dead, but the man at Home Depot told me to bring it back and they will give me another ,so we will try that. I think it died due to not being native. Thanks again.

"The boys that are coming to help me eat it right off the plant. They are whole/raw food eaters. I'm hoping to learn from them too. But I like warm cooked foods so it will be hard for me to go raw all the way for awhile."
