I have a small urban walled garden of exotics, cottage, topiary, and a coastal garden I can't wait to fill with exotics, cottage, topiary...

Morning all. Well I'm glad I didn't take this week off work. Still, my hosta seems to be enjoying the rain, with fan palm behind. #hosta #hostasumandsubstance #hostaflower #chusanpalm #trachycarpus #palm #tropical #exotic

Really struggling with snails this year. Wool pellets & copper bands don't seem to be as effective as they were last year. Anyone got any tips?

I have seen quite a lot of comments saying cider or beer are good, I assume you would put it in shallow bowls. Might be worth a Google!!

Thanks. Yes I've heard of that and also hollowed out grapefruit halves for slugs. Might have to give them a try

I've put egg shells around all of my hosta and delphiniums (do have to keep topping the barrier up) but I've seen a massive reduction. Someone told me about beer traps I've kept a few shallow tins to do this with but never get round to it also thinking about how to keep the rain water out of them...

@Hellebore thanks for that. Egg shells sounds interesting - Might give that a go then. Someone else recommended upturned grapefruit shells for slugs. Apparently they find them irresistible but they're also toxic to them. A friend with an allotment said because of the mild winter they are particularly bad this year.

Yes something to be said for colder winters! If grapefruit is toxic I'll be getting some! Thanks
