creating a soil bed for bushes

I would add some well rotted farmyard manure and mix it in well. The earthworms will find their own way there. 


Make sure you fork over the soil at the bottom of the "trench" to make sure it doesn't form a hard "pan" which would cause drainage problems.

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 .............
