Many London gardens suffer from plagues of snails and slugs, especially so in the last few wet years. They adore tender young foliage as much as we do – so that’s something we have in common at least!
By painful trial and error I have found that what annuals they will not eat (unless starving)
- Pot marigold (Calendula)
- Poppies – Welsh, field, icelandic, Himalayan etc
- Annual quaking grass – in fact all grasses.
- Poached egg plant (Limanthes)
