Succulent Succulent

I had several smaller pots of this Echeveria and they have been torn apart by Slugs and Snails. It is a new one for me , I bought it last year and find it fascinating how it throws out its arms, instead of being all bunched up like other E\cheverias. Now I go out to spread Slug pellets in the Greenhouse. I hate doing it but there are limits and they have gone too far this time.

Hello Poaannua. Looks like something on GOY went wrong as you only get the url to the pic and not the pic itself. Have to bring it to Peter's attention. I hope you don't have any pets, or that neigbour's pets wander through your garden, as snail pallets are highly toxic. I've known a dog to die from it. Best thing to do is put them inside a plastic bottle. The pet can't get in it, but the snails can and they will.

Hope the slugs and snails are eradicated. Best wishes, Grenville.

Good Morning Poaannua, You gotta do what you gotta do. I'm glad I'm not on their list.

Only used it inside the Greenhouse. No pets involved.
