Slug Gone - Out of stock until May 30th
Size: 20 litre bag
How it works. Slug Gone natural pure organic wool pellets are manufactured from the dagging fleece of sheep. Wool fibres have very fine scales with small barbs on the tip called cuticle cells. These cause wool fibres to felt and matt together. Wool fibres are very hygroscopic and this plus the sand and grit already in the compound and the potassium salts from the sweat glands of the sheep absorb some of the slime from the slug's foot to cause irritation, resulting in the slug finding easier feeding methods.
What is Sluggone Slug Gone' wool pellets are composed of 100% natural materials including phosphorous, nitrogen and potassium. As soon as water is added the fibres swell to form a barrier or insulation blanket. When slugs climb onto the fibres it irritates the foot and causes it to seek easier feeding elsewhere.
Application 'Slug Gone' wool pellets are ideal for organic gardening and can be used in pots, flower beds, borders, allotments, herb gardens, nurseries, garden centres, green houses and vegetable plots.
To Use: Clean the area around the plant and place the pellets to fill the surface of the pot, or in a 6” circle around the plant. Make sure all the pellets are touching.
Water well and soon the pellets will swell and bind together to form both a prtotective and insulating blanket. See Detailed Images
These elements are slow released as the pellets biodegrade, taking up to 12 months
Entirely safe for children, pets and wildlife.
Not only do the pellets keep Slugs and Snails at bay, the pellets are also a good mix and balance for growing plants, fruit and vegetables. The pellets hold twice their own weight in water so they act as an excellent mulch, a weed suppressant, a soil conditioner and slow release fertiliser.
The two bags of slug gone which I recently purchased have nearly gone already! I have used a whole bag on mulching my onion bed, so that I wont need to weed it again this season and of course it will also nourish the soil. The rest is being used to protect vunerable plants. Please can yo give me a price for 4 bags! -------- If the price is right I will order them today. I do my best to promote the slug gone with my other gardening friends mainly because I believe it is a good product. I go to a gardening class, which is now closed until late September, but we are getting together for a coffee in July and I intend to take some slug gone along with me. It good to share our gardening experiences with each other.
