Thanks June, I don't put down pellets because of the cats, a skewer and a jar of salt water 😁 @rosiebug

Thanks Karen, been a hard battle against the snails to keep 2 hostas alive 😂 Not sure if my garden wants to be Cottage, Jungle or Woodland, I might work out what I'm doing one day 😉 @Patiorose

Yay. For the first time in 10 years our hosta is still in tact - just a couple of nibbles and I found the culprits. Normally by now they start looking very sad

Great Jason. The rain finally stopped ten minutes ago so I went out on the snail hunt, but couldn't find any. Very strange 🤔

I'm not finding much either Sue, it's a bit odd 🤔 @susanhumphrey333

Same here after last years slug fest, I'm guessing it's because of the very dry weather, although after last nights rain, I have quite a few holes in my dahlias!

Me too Lisa, little buggers had a few nibbles on the Dahlias in the night @lisa868

@Jasonsparkes1 You're on a roll! Do you have slugs year round or do they give you a break in the winter season!

@gjones They give a little break, assuming it's a cold one 😀
