Pah! Putting slug pellets down doesn't mean that it can't be slugs .... they don't read the instructions
If it isn't slugs it's snails
Or it's both of them ............ they gang up on us you know
Get some dry gritty sand and spread it thickly on the soil all around the plants for a radius of about 6" - they won't cross that. Then make sure there are no plants nearby that they can climb up and weigh down and use as a 'bridge' - they're very crafty!
Then the only way they can get to the plants is by tunnelling underground, so that narrows the culprits down to those little grey slugs
Good luck - we're all in this together you know
