Slugs and Hosta

Be ready for slugs as they appear. ┬áLet’s make it a goal to have a slug free hosta garden!!

Weed your hosta bed and coat the top surface with lime as the hostas emerge in the spring. slugs prefer acid conditions and lime is alkaline.  Diatomaceous earth will also keep slugs away. Sprinkle it around the plants. They dislike crawling over rough surfaces.
