What with all this rain I thought it would be wise to buy some copper tape at lunch to put around my sunflower and dahlia pots. Went out to my garden tonight (braving the horrendous weather) only to find 1 snail eating the entire head of a sunflower and at least 6 munching through my 2 dahlias!!! I thought I may be worrying too much but im glad i was and went out to check.
Cut my finger on the copper tape while getting completely drenched and then decided sod it, and put the vulnerable sun flowers and dahlias in the shed.. free from snails... will work out a plant survival plan tomorrow.
If you are worried that snails are having a field day, then you are probably not wrong, you may want to check. Bahhh I hate slimey suckers!!!
