Cardiocrinum giganteum and Slugs

4 years ago

I finally reached my limit of tolerance for slugs devouring these wonderful plants. I have tried sluggo, eggshells, diatomaceous earth, flashlight and early morning hunt and destroy forays, etc.

I now have used a barrier of crushed oyster shell and miraculously it is keeping them at bay. I am concerned about the possible liming affect on the plants. My soil is generally on the acid side and the lilies are in a woodland area. Anyone have an opinion.

P.S. working well on my hostas as well!

Thank you.
