Slug-repelling Wool Pellets
In this mix
A natural and harmless barrier to slugs and snails.
Lay plenty of wool pellets around the base of the plant and water in. You need to be generous with the pellets so be brave! As the wool swells, it forms a protective 'mat' around the stems which contain minute abrasive fibres that slugs don't like - it irritates the slugs foot as well as drawing moisture out of it, so they will stay away.
Added benefits to the soil include improved moisture retention, weed suppression and the slow release of naturally beneficial nutrients into the soil.
