    Let me know how you get on😉 @Fire
    Not a huge problem with slugs here  this year, but then i grow very little of what they're interested in. took cuttings from your royal bumble a little while back .100% taken😊
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Feed the birds. Will help by eating the pests. Water in the morning rather than the evening. Smashed up eggshells around the base of tasty plants can help. For plants in pots copper tape or petroleum jelly smeared around the lip of the pot. I used to live near a forest and used for cones collected from walks around plants they helped too. Good luck.

    thanks everyone for the tips. Really want to have plants the slugs don't like.

    None of which work.
