I have done the salt thing but then you end up with a disgusting bucket full of goo. My child is a compulsive snail squasher since we started our veg patch. I'm sure I should tell him it's not ok but then I catch sight of my delphiniums and........I agree about the nematodes being of limited use. Last time I had them the instructions went on about the coditions they needed to work properly - honestly how tough can they be if the wrong weather upsets them. For slugs you can't beat a pair of big scissors and a head torch. I do like animals honest!
