Or failing chickens, lots of broken up egg shell. Sprinkle liberally around the base of plants, slugs don’t like going over it. That’s my hunch anyway. We do have loads of egg shells to use though from our hens, and loads of egg shells go in the compost we make. Problem with hens doing slug patrol is that they also like eating the tasty green things, so require careful supervision!
You are very right! Put the ladies to work in the overgrown poly tunnel again for another couple of hours today. Did sterling work - but also worked out that they could knock over the plastic bottles I was using to defend the tomato seedlings and scoffed half a dozen. Naughty chickens!
I will be putting up signs to show them the difference between weeds and veg.
