I've just set up 2 small raised beds in my back garden with a plan to show my 2 year old where food comes from. We are planting carrots, salad leaves, sweetcorn etc. We are both v excited to be trying to grow something we can eat!
My problem is that my garden is full of slugs and snails and I need to keep them away from the veg patch. Any ideas? Nemaslug poss won't work as we have very clay soil here and I don't want to go down the pellets route as I'm worried that she might try to eat/touch them when I'm not watching.
So, I'm thinking beer traps - but do they just attract even more slugs? does anyone have any child-friendly ideas for slug carnage?
thank you in advance!
