I'll join you Topbird - just in case of a relapse you understand :)

Organic eradication of slugs and snails in beds!

Posted: 18/06/2016 at 16:10

Lots of regulars on here have found that they work well if you follow the directions.


I've not used them, but this garden has very gritty soil and doesn't seem to get too much slug damage (famous last words)

Yes, the sheep's wool pellets are organic - as are nematodes https://www.nematodesdirect.co.uk/ 


Good luck

Hi John and welcome 


Several regulars on the forum have found that Nematodes are the most effective way to deal with ants https://www.nematodesdirect.co.uk/9-no-ants-nematodes


Good luck!

Vanishing slug pellets.

I agree - very worrying.  The main ingredient of metaldehyde pellets is cereal and yeast which will make it attractive to birds and animals.  


The blue colour is supposed to make them unattractive to birds and animals, but jackdaws are well known for being attracted to bright things so .............

I agree with Nut ... as usual 

Can anyone tell me what this is please.

Yes looks like Salix caprea (Goat Willow) to me - as has been said they seed all over the place - unless you have a garden of several acres with room for a large wildlife area I'd recommend pulling it up.  It's not a fruit tree. 


What's eating my dahlia stems?

And slugs and snails too
