"Herbs suffer pests and diseases just the same as other plants; this review is how to spot them and also how to deal with them. As you may have guessed I am very into organic gardening, which I use in my garden and on my allotment. It's not easy being organic as some pests are not very nice to pick of, but hopefully I will give you some advice to keep that dreaded chemical out of the garden. **Biological control Biological controls are becoming ..."

Banish Slugs and Snails Naturally

AdvantagesSafe with pets and children

DisadvantagesNone

"With two baby tortoises about to wander around the garden this summer, I realised I can no longer go sprinkling my slug pellets about willy-nilly. I have therefore had to consider the habits of slugs and snails very carefully and ways to dispose of them naturally. I remember sitting outside one summers evening last year and remember being able to hear the little buggers munching away at my plants. Armed with a torch I sprinkled pellets merrily ..." Read review

AdvantagesNot fast enough to run away

DisadvantagesDifficult to control chemically

"A sinister visitor is making it's way across the United Kingdom, quietly creeping from garden to garden in the dead of night, hunting out and voraciously consuming it's defenceless prey.

Getting rid of slugs

AdvantagesEnvironmentally friendly

DisadvantagesSlightly more time consuming than chemicals

"Six years ago I moved into a house with a major slug problem in the garden. Slugs, by the way, as you probably know, have healthy appetites for most plants, fruit and veg. Every time it rained and often when it didn’t, hundreds of slugs came out in droves – black ones, brown ones, striped and spotted ones, long and thin, short and fat ones – so many different kinds of slugs. But I had this idea that I wanted to garden organically, so I have tried ..." Read review
