if i have a organic remedy to keep snails away would i be able to sell it
I have just had my chimney cleaned and asked if I could keep the soot as my dad used to use it on the garden but my sister tells me he only used it on certain plants. Question is what can I use it on and what not to use it on. I understand it is good to kill off slugs and snails, is it?

Since I moved to the West Country I've noticed that the snails get thenselves up in outfits looking like humbugs or creamy toffees and even a silky version of chocolate. How can we be expected to kill thesee beautiful creatures, I found it hard enough to dispatch the large stately common garden snails!!!!
I am trying porridge oats this year with a touch of Marrow Rum - anyone know how successful I am likely to be?

Yes, we have snails masquerading as humbugs here in Norfolk too

how about a beer trap!..A cola bottle half buried with the top opening level with the soil creating a door so to speak, locate the trap near to where the plants that have been got at, also (a bit messy) scatter salt on the patios near planters use a hose and a stiff brush to clean up afterwards. hopefully the beer trap will work (I use real ale) works wonders
