That's a good point. I think part of the problem is that the plants are too close to each other. I planted a bit to close and the plants themselves are huge. The slugs have all the dark shade they need under the plants. I won't make that mistake again.Paquebot said:To eliminate slugs, eliminate their homes. If you are mulching heavy, and that mulch never dries out, you have supplied the slugs with a permanent home. I have mulch around my peppers and tomatoes. There is no mulch ever around my cabbages and I never find bits of slugs in my kraut!
