    I understand from the article in the Telegraph, that you are experiencing a plague of slugs.
    In Tasmania, where I have a home and garden, I have been told to use Eucalyptus wood sawdust round my newly planted vegies, to deter these little menaces. I tried this out with newly planted runner bean plants and didn’t lose one ! The slugs seem to hate the texture and also the resin in the gum wood. I do hope that this may be of help….and its nearly free. I know of a source here in the UK if you need it.
