My precious plants get ravaged by slugs every year, I’ve tried various methods of getting rid of them but to no avail. Do you have any suggestions?

Of the many slug control solutions available, we’re big fans of copper tape, such as this offering from STV Pest-Free Living. The self-adhesive tape can be fixed around pots and planters, generating a small electrical charge to help prevent slugs and snails from munching on your plants. It comes in a pack containing a four-metre length, enough to protect plenty of planters, and can also be used for raised beds and cold frames. STV Pest-Free Living’s range of products are available from a range of stockists – to find your nearest one visitwww.stvpestcontrol.com.
