Oh! Maybe I should read ingredients first then as trying to be more wildlife friendly this year...
sterelitza - I've noticed that the snails avoid most things with a tiny leaf eg: achillea, leptospermum, cosmos, artemesia etc and also I second that they dislike roses plus leaves that are aromatic like rosemary and lavender.
I am about to apply my yearly dose of slug nematodes now that the soil has warmed a bit - it worked very well last year - slugs obliterated. Now just trying to tackle damn snails.
Apparently there are also hostas with rougher, more corrugated leaves, which these pesky molluscs hate, though I have to see it to believe it.
