I know. They hit my favourite green leathery one when it started to unfurl. They are going to be moved into the gravel while I am away and I will again douse the slate in pellets whilst I am away!! 

last night the slime trails on the raised bed was an eye opener! And the French beans in trug tubs had a hole in the leaf despite liberal pellets around the plants

2 years I have had the bed and boarders. I was wondering about trraps to sink into the soil made from plastic bottle bottoms. But what is more alluring to slugs than my plants aNd that lasts longer than beer.  Jam??

Hi all. Invasion is happening!!!! My raised bed that was slug free last year is inundated already, I have laced with pellets as the dog can't get to this. However last night they were on my paths and on my flower beds and even on the slate in my Hosta pots!! This has always worked before. 

 

I need cheap home made solutions as I can't put pellets everywhere the dog will helpfully Hoover them up!!! Please help. Any ideas. I'm going away for 4 nights and don't want to return to munched plants!!!!

my poor courgette and French beans are missing half a leaf each!!!!!!

Make do and mend
