Liming effect on slugs?
After years of mulching my allotment beds, the soil is in great heart, but it is slug and snail paradise, despite every other organic method of control. I read in a very old gardening book that "slugs can't abide an alkaline soil" Is this true. My ph test shows a slightly acid soil. I am planning to lime this year. Can I expect a reduction in damage? Can't find much in modern books on this subject.
