Good morning peeps! This photo may not excite you, but it does me!!! 😊 This is the first year in as long as I can recall that slugs havent ravished my Hosta new growth. I've been religiously applying nematodes and looks like it's working 😆 Have a great day ☀️😎#pestcontrol #slugs #snails #nematodes #hosta

Definitely a sight for sore eyes! Mine haven't appeared yet but noticed the slugs had found dad's yesterday!

What's a nematode?? I've been laying really prickly thorny sticks alongside some of my plants, as they say slugs don't like crawling over the spikes. Last year I planted courgettes next to the Brassicas and that seems to work, as they also are very spikey. Looks great btw

It's exciting to me. Keep checking mine and nothing yet, but I love how they seem to pop up from nowhere!

I have my Hosta's in a pot, when is it best to transfer them to a new area ? Yours look like they are doing fabulous.

I have some nematodes waiting for application for my vine weevil, will they also destroy slugs ?
