Has anyone got the recipe that was given out on Gardeners world some years ago for garlic wash to deter these pests please.
I did a search on this site and found this. Hope its what you're looking for.
my self, this my recipe , boil a pint of water put a clove in, leave to cool and when cooled put water with clove in spray bottle and top up with water (it will come stronger).
I have just woken up to find 80% of my beans decimated...and two big fat snails crawling over the last two. I've been using nematodes, I've been watering the ground with a a boiled up snails mixture to put them off. I've patrolled the garden every evening to hand pick them (got 50+ yesterday). I'm about to give up the whole flipping thing and just grow roses...they don't seem to be interested in those....yet!!
please please if anyone has any advice I would be so very grateful!
(...the slugs do seem to have diminished considerably - it's just the snails...)
Spread a layer of sharp sand around the beans - they don't crawl over that - it's keeping them away from my sunflowers
ok I'm on it!
thank you so much!
Or crushed up egg shells as an alternate for sharp sand!
