This old article, albeit dramatic, does highlight the need to make sure you are aware of the type of slug pellets you are using and their effect on pets, children and the environment.
Well not treasure exactly, but rather my crop of salad potatoes.
This year I have tried a variety called 'Charlotte'.
I have spent the morning digging up my potato plants and have been delighted with the yield.
Most importantly I only lost a handful of potatoes to the slug! Slug control in full effect!
I only hope my maincrop do as well. They will be in the ground for another month, and the more time in the ground means more opportunity for the sluggy menace to attack.
I have an allotment and love growing my own food, admittedly with varying degrees of success. One of the biggest problems I face is the slug. This somewhat light hearted blog will chronicle my war against this insidious pest.
