Can anybody help me get rid of what seems like the entire worlds population of slugs in my garden? I began gardening two years ago and the first year was fab...lots of veg and flowers with very little attack from the slimy critters...ugh! but last year total destruction:/ I tried slug pellets and beer traps, the dusk patrol with torch, crushed egg shells and soapy water...all failed and having seen the size of some of them I'm not surprised. I've read about nematodes...any good? I gave up with bulbs too because they disappeared by the next year I believe due to black keel slugs? My hubby thinks its hilarious when I go on my night-time patrol armed with torch and salt pot) I will win! with your help any suggestions gratefully received...thanks everyone

How to rejuvenate soil in large pot?

I replace the top few inches with fresh compost, fertilizer of some sort depending what you're growing in the pot, seems to have worked well for me

I was under the same impression and on inspecting mine today found it had rotted away completely - very disappointed as will have to buy again. I followed the instructions to the letter so don't know why it failed to survive but will have another go at keeping it alive over next winter. Good luck

Can i use the ash from my indoor open fire on my garden vegetable patch? I have only burnt wood and paper (and maybe 4 cubes of firelighter). Or if not the vegetable patch on the flowerbeds?
