    Well, for instance, you wouldnt use slug pellets to kill greenfly, or spray greenfly killer on snails, so what is eating which plant?

    Hi Samantha - what sort of plants are you growing and which ones are being eaten?

    If all types of plants are being eaten, are they being eaten in the same way or are there differences in the way the plants are being attacked?

    Are there any little critters on the plants, or shiny slime trails, or anything else?
