TIPS ........

The adhesive copper tape that is available to stick around the rims of pots in order to deter slugs and snails can also be formed into rings which can be popped around the stems of vulnerable plants.  You can cut the tape in half, it works just as well and is more economical.  Cut a strip about 6 inches long, peel off the backing paper  about an inch at one end and stick down to form a ring.  It has worked so far for me this year!

Slugs

Sorry, can't help with the slug pellets but this year I have had success in the slug war with rings made from adhesive copper tape obtainable in garden centres and designed to wrap around the rims of pots.  However if you cut off  lengths and form them into  rings  (May be cut in half too) and pop them around the stems of your most vulnerable plants they do seem to keep the slugs away.
