Cauliflower Plants
Q.

slugs & snails

Anonymous added on December 7, 2014 | Answered

My husband and I have made a raised bed for vegetables from a mound of earth and an old compost heap. We planted some winter cabbage and cauliflower but they have all been eaten I presume by slugs, etc. I was told I could use Jeys Fluid to sterilize the ground which we have done and don't intend to use the ground till next spring BUT I have now been told that using Jeys Fluid is illegal. Can you help please?

    You can try using Diatomaceous Earth and eggshells in your bed. These articles will also help with snail and slug control: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/organic-snail-control.htm

    I highly recommend a product called Sluggo. It worked great for me when I needed to gain control of slugs and a few snails too. Here is a link for you: http://www.planetnatural.com/product/sluggo-snail-slug-bait/
