They don't like gravel as it tires them as they have to produce more slime

I have put egg shells down before Karen they don't like slithering over that either.
Didn't know that before Sixpence :-)

Growing on very well. Glad I don't have to fend off the slimey pests. Good luck.

Thanks Greenthumb -do you get many slugs in Alaska?

10 May, 2010

 

Yes, I have used gravel, coffee grinds and sand in the past but since we moved here they seem to be totally unputoffable!!

They are a nuisance Karen -they definitely don't like salt. Did you know that you can put coffee grounds down the sink Karen?

None here Robert. No snails, slugs, or snakes. I like the lack of slithering things.

You are very lucky then GT not to have these slimey things:-)

No Karen wouldn't dream of it. You can't put tea leaves down the sink but coffee grounds are OK -or so I have read. I have always put them down the sink when I have had them. There are a load of other uses for them too:-
