Gardening should be a way to unwind and appreciate the the outside. However, a gardener’s rage level is raised more than developing one morning to discover the plants are eaten by slugs or snails by few issues. Signs of a snail or slug invasion are holes in the leaves of your plants and a mucus path. Because snails and slugs can use their bodies to climb vertically crops in containers and planters aren’t secure from these creatures. Protect your container- crops from these mollusks that are hungry.

Clean edge and the rim of your planter using a rag. Scuff up the edge as well as the rim just just beneath the rim of the planter using a little bit of the sand-paper.

Cut a bit of sand-paper in to strips broad enough to protect the rim of your planter. Also reduce 1-inch-wide sand-paper strips to go round the fringe of of your planter just just beneath the rim.

Glue the 1-inch-wide strips across the edge of the planter just underneath the rim of the planter. In the event the items will not remain in place as you slip down once they have been used by you, or glue, use masking tape to to keep them in place until the glue dries. After the glue dries, carefully pull the tape away.

Glue the bits of sandpaper you reduce over the rim of the planter for the rim of your planter. Allow the glue to dry.

Place the planter in your backyard or on plant and your patio. Sprinkle a-1-inch- line of egg shells across the bottom of your planter. Over the soil in your planter, sprinkle egg-shells as an additional measure of safety, or should you not want to spot egg-shells on your patio.
