Roughly on the topic of slugs. I don't know if I got the idea of doing this from this forum or elsewhere but I have of late been collecting my egg shells as they're used - washing them out in soapy water and then popping them in the oven for 10 minutes when I'm cooking dinner to kill any nasties and dry them out.
I now have half a jar full of egg shells (crushing them slightly to save on space since they'll be crushed eventually anyway) ready to use when I sew seedlings out into the garden.
Does anyone else have any novel ideas for keeping the slugs at bay?
