1961RE: [pfaf] my HUUUUGE problem with S L U G S. Help!!!
- Dec 3, 2007Hi!
I visited a wildlife friendly garden last year, run by Marc Carlton & his partner in SE London, and I remember him saying they didn't have a problem with slugs/snails eating their veg because they attracted sufficient predators (birds/frogs/hedgehogs etc) for there to be a balanced ecosystem. It had taken many years to achieve this - seems like a sustainable (permaculture) way to approach the problem to me, tho' more of a long term approach I guess.

Subject: [pfaf] my HUUUUGE problem with S L U G S. Help!!!
This is my very first post here.
I am TRYING to get as much inspiration as possible to try and create a
permaculture garden where I live.
It is a small garden and quite odd. But before I go off on a tangent, in
order for me to even BEGIN the design--as it were--i need to know what
to do about the slug problem we have here in Northwest UK, or at least I have.
Manchester---well hwere I am anyway.
I cannot tell you the amount of plants we have bought--not
vegetables--that have simply become slug food. I have kept the garden
organic, but in doing so kind of gave in to the slug problem by just
keeping the plants they dont seem to eat!
But...if I want to create an edible garden, I really need help with this
first(?) MAJOR problem.
I bought Michael Guerra's book Edible Container Garden, and before
emailing you, I tried to find if he has a contact address (?) but cannot
find one. because this is a question I would ask him.
So I am looking for an idea or _IDEAS_ how to tackle this problem of slugs.
