Try garlic water for a natural slug deterrent

2 cloves cut up and left in a jar of water over night, then spray this over your veg/fruit etc...
And I promise the slugs instantly move away from the garlic water.
Just make sure you re-spray after it has rained.
Thanks Moonbeam will definitely give it a go
Does it work for Hostas,I will try it this year,I'm fed up growing food for slugs.
It sounds so easy I'll give it a go thanks for the advice.
Moonbean - how often do you spray it? I've used this before but not with great success, maybe I don't use it often enough, it's mainly for my hostas. Although used Nematods last year and were fab!
I don't know. Last year the slugs decimated my chives. Tough old chives. (In a way they did me a favour because new ones are coming through.) But I put the chives there specifically because I didn't think the slugs like them. I'd go out at night and they'd be covered. (I've given up eating chives after that.) If they like chives, they might like garlic too.
