Louise - I have to agree, zapping slugs this way is a pretty yucky business.....stay brave, they will soon be romping away & immune from them (shall I change my avatar?)
I don't know what preparation of your soil you did prior to planting, but if you added compost/manure/bonemeal etc, they'll not need feeding until they start to flower.
What to feed? Providing it's a high potash feed, it doesn't really matter.
