Say NO to slug food.
It is more than flesh and blood can stand, you envisage an ornamental grass border in the late summer with heleniums, achilleas and asters (all I love) wafting amongst the fluffy heads. After 4 years of fighting the slug fight, I have given up. Not even beer traps, grit, egg shells will stop them. I have a hedgehog - he must be on a diet. I have frogs - they must be picky. I am done spending money on slug food.
So, please anyone, do you have any ideas for replacements/alternatives that slugs hate? I have day lilies, echinacea, rudbeckia and agastache. But I would love to replace the heleniums, achilleas and asters that will not make it again this year.
All suggestions will be gratefully received.
