Patriot versus Minuteman slug resistance

8 years ago

Does anyone have any experience with slug resistance of Patriot versus Minuteman?
I've narrowed my search for a medium green with white edge to these 2 varieties and the decision is down to which of them is more slug resistant. A hosta grower told me that the white portions of hostas are like cheesecake to slugs.....they can't resist the white portions of the leaf for a meal. That hosta grower said that Patriot is very much damaged by slugs but Minuteman has a thicker leaf and therefore not as attractive to slugs for muching.
All feedback is welcome.
I have a dog so slug bait is too dangerous an option.
Many thanks.....
