Mark, I am concerned about the over use of slug pellets. I use them very sparingly in spring and never near food. a torch and brine at night is part of my regime. pellets are under cover too in little pockets so,,hopefully, not a danger to any wildlife
however, nematodes work very well. Second year using them on veg plot and just a few days ago applied them. A solution for slugs but not snails, of course.
touch wood....I grow healthy foliage intact hostas in pots and in the ground, lettuce and many other usually slug attracting plants so my regime works well
