No Fishy, what a boring garden that would be. Besides slugs, etc. will feed on whatever is left there. Yes,they are going for the softer cultivated plants now in preference to wild stuff but grow just those and they will be eaten too.
nematodes I think provide some answers. ,so do pellets. So do nighttime patrols. I use a combination of all 3 but no pellets near food.
so far I am doing well.....hostas still looking excellent both in the ground and in pots For example.
it is frustrating. Currently I have an issue with blackbirds taking all my blueberries despite being netted now. Should have had hundreds but prob now just a few.
we have to learn to be one step ahead of these pests....with blackcurrants regular picking of the ripe ones keeps me winning....for now
