Artemisia (wormwood) is also recognised as a plant to deter slugs. My mature plant seems to work but the slugs devoured a young one as quickly as any hosta!
My conclusion from this is that slugs do not discriminate if plants are young and tasty!
Last year, I discovered a congregation of slugs under one of my planters. I moved the planter and the blackbirds and thrushes soon moved down to the exposed slugs.
