Sorry got distracted, slugs and snails if you don't feel you can kill them out right put salt and water in your bucket and drop them in & dispose of them next day. No use taking them on a holiday they do return, if not in your garden but a neighbours

Sorry meant to say Hello  miss D & Pauline

I agree with all above, only exception is that I buy ant traps, little tubs fron B & Q and such places when they go into greenhouse. They tunnel between the paving slabs as the floor is usually dry. They take the product back to the nest and they die off. I'm happy to hose the ones who make nests in dry areas of cracks in my paths.

I have some growing in an inhospitable place semi shade, windy and in heavy clay which is either wet or dried out, serves a purpose and I haven't had much trouble removing any that spreads.
