Can I outwit a slug?

I’ve been planting lots of seeds over the past month or so and they germinate and start to grow. But then something comes along, probably a slug, and demolishes it in one go. They don’t eat the weeds. Oh no. They leave the weeds and eat the thing I want.

I’m not going to be outwitted by a f**king slug, so now I’ve got a mini-greenhouse for my greenhouse and have surrounded it with salt.


I planted these seeds just a few days ago and some have germinated already. So far, so good.


Take that slugs! Rachel – 1. Slugs – 0.
