Slugs and snails - help needed!!

Posted: 21/06/2012 at 18:59

i have used nematodes for the past few years to protect hostas, delphiniums  and other 'slug favourites' with great success - applied via a watering can only around the vulnerable plants

More expensive than slug pellets and  repeat applications are necessary every 6-8 weeks or so.

Available only online i believe from places like Unwins, Garden Naturally, Green Gradener - they are not stocked in garden centres because they are a living organism with a 'use by' date
