Auxiris BS: Not hearing the first cuckoo of Spring (34) RE: BS: Not hearing the first cuckoo of Spring 18 Feb 04

Liz, I am indeed sorry to hear of the sad fate of your hostas and should have known better than to suggest them. We have many problems over here with both slugs and snails and the only thing that really keeps them away at all are slug pellets.

Before the rest of you start to cry out in horror, please believe me when I say that I do use many other slug and snail deterrents, including beer, wood ashes and so on when possible, i.e. non-rainy periods and only use the pellets when I cannot do otherwise. Slugs and snails also enjoy munching on my tall bearded iris seedlings, which I cannot allow, as there is a 3-year wait from the moment that the initial cross is done to their first bloom.
