First year we have really had to go out of our way to deal with the molluscs and we think we have disposed of over 4,000 of them so far. They are even eating plants which we have never seen even the slightest damage on before. Potato haulms have no leaves, nor have the giant yellow Scabious. The Heleniums and Shasta Daisies have gone completely, nothing left at all.
We don't spray with insecticides either, too many bees to take the risk.
I sound like some sort of extreme Buddhist, but it just struck me that's all.
