I sympathise, Richard. I think you've got the kind of scarey material for an Edgar Allan Poe or Roald Dahl story in your compost bin.

To add to my slug and snail woe, this week the wind has beheaded my irises before they'd had a chance to do any showing off. My roses and peonies are so waterlogged that their heads fall off and land on the ground like King Henry 8th's wives at the Tower of London. All so distressing.

A bright spot was Gardeners' World yesterday. Gardeners are such a tolerant, cheerful and optimistic lot. Hundreds of us were viewing the excellent plants and shrubs and packing them into our boxes and pulling them round behind us all day. All hoping that the summer would begin today.

Perhaps not today but hopefully tomorrow!  Happy S&S hunting.

Massacre of plants last night. I might even succumb to blue pellets. I'm at Gardeners' World later this week and hope to get some of the pellets recommended by firebird 2012. Meanwhile its still crunch and cruch again. Hate slugs and snails.

Pleased it did for you, firebird2110 ,Rob. I tried that method too but the little blighters took no notice and continued to thrive neigh survive in greater numbers.

Like both the ideas of organic slug pellets. I shall visit the well known auction site to purchase same. I shall miss the satisfying crunch but feel it is now time to curb my homicidal excesses

Wow Scotyboy and Koala Girl I'm so with you!
Your enthusiasm Scotyboy puts me to shame . However, I shall go on an inebriated midnight roam with my drunken snails in a bucket. Promise me that ALL of you will speak up for me when I get taken to court for snail homicide whilst under the influence.

A swift foot crush is the method I use. I then pray that when I die and hopefully meet my Maker that S/He isn't a snail!
