  4. Thanks for the tips! I grew the most gorgeous lettuce this year, went out to pull some for a salad and slugs were all over it. Not very appetizing! I do have several of the herbs you listed on the other end of my garden, maybe next year I’ll try planting them together.

    • Hi Amy,Thanks! 🙂
      It is a great idea to plant them together!I’ve tricked slugs into not noticing clematis (the only yummy treat I’ve got for them in my garden) by planting nasturtiums all around it. Lettuce is their ultimate treat, so they might get desperate to eat it anyway,but it is so worth a try.
      Slugs sure are ugly creatures! Yesterday,hubby found one almost half size of my foot !

  6. I wholeheartedly disagree that slugs won’t eat Alliums. a slug went up two of my just-beginning-to-bloom purple globes of glory and ate the entire stem about 30″ on each. Needless to say, that was his-and-her last meal.
