My bed of impatiens under the tree in the front yard is pathetic. The slugs have taken over. Each evening, before dark, I put beer in small containers scattered throughout the bed. Slugs start to come out at dark. They are attracted to the beer, crawl in the containers and die.
Last year was the first year I had this problem but I managed to have a nice, pretty display of red and white impatiens blooms. This year? The jury is still out.
I think next year, I may plant hostas there. Do you know of a better, more fool proof way of dealing with slugs in your garden? If so, I'd love to hear from you.
