Slugs & Snails

Public enemy number one in the garden needs no introduction. There can be few pests hated as heartily as slugs and snails: anyone who's found hostas eaten to lacy doilies, or lettuces munched to a stump will know the heartbreak these slimy menaces cause.

We've got an armoury of weapons you can use against them available in our garden centre. Use a combination of barriers, baits and traps to keep your plants slug-free.

Barriers are laid thickly around individual plants or beds. Copper rings give slugs a small electric shock, and a thick layer of grit is really hard for slugs and snails to slime across - they hate added garlic even more. Top grit barriers up regularly to keep them effective.

Wildlife-friendly & organic wool pellets - scatter sparingly and water in to make them more effective. Replenish regularly to keep your plants well protected.

Please ask our friendly staff for more information and advice about slug deterrents suitable for your garden & its wildlife.
