Blackeyed Susan Buds Eaten

What is eating the buds off of my Black-eyed Susans

Yesterday I caught the culprits. This was the first time since winter that I saw deers.
I didn’t see them eating them, but I figured they were the guys. It was Momma and 2 babies.
I new it wasn’t the squirrels because the plants were too high. No rabbits around.
Convinced it was slugs....till yesterday.
Thanks for all the work you do.
You have helped me in the past with my dogwood tree many years ago.
Be blessed, Sandi

Is this poisonous to dogs or humans?

Within the last 2 weeks these have popped up. I wanted to know if they were poisonous and what kind of plant they are? Thank you for your help.

Prostrate spurge (euphorbia maculata)

I am tired of weeding my garden and thought what if I found a low growing weed and used it as a ground cover in the garden. No I'm not crazy but I decided to try prostrate spurge. I chose a sunny location in the garden and it is matting the ground around my plants and shrubs. I know it's an annual but my question is - what would be the down side of this procedure. I too am a master gardener in Suffolk county New York and couldn't find any information about this type of gardening. It's like planting sweet woodruff in the shade to cover the ground but the difference is prostrate spurge is a weed and I know it will grow without a lot of fuss. What do you think?

Laurel HELP

Is there anything I can do to help make my Laurels healthy again? I've seen in similar posts comments that pesticide is too tedious a process for the average person but if it's a choice between using something effective and losing the plant I really would like to spray something, do something. Can you help?
