    Ive just googled it, its a granule 100% natural and for what i quickly looked at £6.95 for three litres so not a bad price either. I wonder if its available in my local garden centre Ill look out for it. thanks Cranesbill

    If it's the stuff I think it is, you have to use an awful lot of it, as it needs to form a physical barrier right round the plant or plants, which slugs/snails can't or won't cross. Fine grit or gravel would do a similar job (although they're not cheap either). Or crushed eggshells, but you need a lot of that too - each egg ony yields about a teaspoon of crushed shell.

    On the plus side, the Slug Stoppa is not unattractive around plants, looking a bit like pale grit. But one packet won't go very far.

    thanks for the info,saw it for sale in my local Home and Bargain store.

  • As we have a courtyard garden our plants are in pots we use adhesive copper barrier tape we find it very effective

    Love your slugs and snails, they have a job to do too! Having said that they are just munching their way through my new dianthus.........
