Keeping slugs and snails off your hostas

Hosta in containerOne way to keep slugs and snails off your hostas is to grow them in containers.

Put gravel around the base of the container and another layer around the plants.

A simple method and it works quite well without the use of slug pellets.

The gravel around the base of the hosta helps keep the roots cool and prevent moisture loss
