So rather than using nasty slug pellets what can you do:

1. bury a pot with top in line with soil and fill with beer-yum, yum;

2. Copper bands around your pots or around planting area, make sure to bury them a bit as slugs go underground too;

3. spread ash, crushed egg shells, nut casings…around vunerable plants…it seems to be the beans that the snails love for us…

4. Upside down citrus fruit:
