The best protection from slugs and snails

Hardy herbacaeous perennials
Lupins, delphiniums and salvias are notoriously vulnerable to slug and snail attack. We protect these plants with a large Slug Ring for their entire lives. When the plant dies down we leave the ring in place marking the position of the plant so it doesn't get damaged during winter border maintenance. The new spring shoots will be protected from the moment they appear. 

Hostas 
These are loved by slugs and snails and we grow them inside large rings (or two rings joined together for large plants). However, once the leaves get going, some hostas are so low growing and pendulous that they grow over the ring and touch the ground on the outside of the ring. This will make a bridge for slugs and snails, so we trim the long lower leaves back.

Pot plants 
These can be protected with a ring around the base of the plant or you can stand the whole pot inside a Slug Ring.

 

Climbing Plants
Climbing plants such as clematis and sweet peas need protecting with small rings when they are young. Make sure that any training poles are inside the ring.
