Before Now Slugs and snails don’t like the taste and slime away and the liquid stimulates growth. The blurb states it is harmless to other animals and the planet but I do need to research into the product to ensure it is definitely not harming other insects/birds etc. (If any blogger is aware of negative effects do let me know)
Yesterday I made my “exterminate the aphids” spray (one head of chopped garlic steeped overnight in one litre of warm water, strained and mixed with a teaspoon of natural dishwashing liquid). It works well on the rose bushes. I have yet to try on herbs and vegetables but today decided to experiment and see if the slugs and snails dislike the taste – I sprayed one of the sorrel plants. Of course it could have the opposite effect and invite the pests to a garlic flavoured dinner.
