Talking with Others
I have recently chatted with a Master Gardener who recommended solving the slug problem with caffeine. She has started wrapping coffee grounds around the base of the plant she is attempting to protect. It turns out that the plant has remained hole free. Her theory has proven to be correct in her case and it is the caffeine that is keeping the slugs at bay. I think I am going to try it. Not only am I going to try it but I hope to continue to interact with other garden lovers to learn and eventually share, some tricks of the trade.
