can i yous slug pellits around runner beans ?



Yes, though for the sake of the other wild life and pets I'd recommend you to use the newer organic ones based on ferric phosphate, not the metaldehyde pellets.

Do you really need to now ?. i would have thought the plants would be well on their way by now.

I find my slugs and snails are voracious and still eat anything they can get.

Thankyou for your response but my worry is will the beans be edible?

The ferric phosphate ones as recommended by Beattie are harmless, Hendrikus. I use them round the vegetables if I feel the need.
