you could try garlic as a plant ( take a clove and stick in ground where needed) or if bigger plants a garlic spray (put clove in  a pint of boiling water and let cool then put in spray bottle and stand for a day,it gets stronger  all the time and re-fill with water cold.)or you could put grit or gravel round them make an evening search for pests and despose how you like,if you have hens they like slugs.
