Does anyone know if slugs and snails eat Cerinthe? I have grown some from seed and am worried when I put them in the garden that they will get eaten and all my hard work will be for nothing.



I have a few in the greenhouse waiting to go in and they have been nibbled. possibly woodlice though. When you plant out put beer traps/slug pellets near to them to be on the safe side.

Well, I suffer with snails, but they leave my cerinthe plants alone.

Thanks. Well hopefully they'll leave well alone and I'll have some lovely plants later on in the year.

I have mentioned that snails/slugs are active here all year long, and I have some volunteer Cerinthe from last year that are just beginning to flower, and no problems.

I can plant out with confidence then. Thanks.
