hey puresativa, what do you think about a extreme garlic and spice juice right in a container in the heart of your garden or around it.

Nice thread! Regarding slugs and snails, in my experience eggshells work great. You first need to grind them to small pieces, less than 5mm is ideal, as it provides a sharp surface that the critters won't appreciate.
Moreover, eggshells are more than 90% Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and break down slowly into Calcium and CO2 with time (action of acids in fact, which react with carbonates), often more than a season is needed for total breakdown.

Good luck peace

thanks to someone around here with the suggestion of using burnt wood charcoal chunks to keep slugs and snails off. i had to try something and it definitely worked. i think it stopped the moles from diggin in the roots also. im impressed.

tape

Slugs and leaf hoppers are stoped by a simple pieces of tape applied on the main branches.Ofcourse you have to put them upside down,sticky part out,this is a leathal trap and cheap.
I also enjoy picking up green praying mantis when i go for a walk.Once you put them in your plants they will stay there cause it is a perfect habitat for them .
They will eat anything and wont dammage your crop.

PEACE
