Voted as ‘Our Choice’ by BBC Gardeners World Magazine.
Slug Gone pellets are made from sheep wool. They pull slime off the slug’s foot, so the slugs go off to find easier feeding elsewhere.
Place the slug pellets in plant pots, or around plants in your garden, veg plot or allotment to stop slugs in their tracks.
Safe to use around pets and children, as the pellets do not contain any harmful chemicals.
After 12 months the pellets biodegrade and the phosphates, potash and nitrate naturally occurring in the sheep wool act as a slow release fertiliser nourishing your soil.
Made in England

'I placed these around my marigolds in pots at the bottom of my garden.These are usually attacked early on in their growth cycle by slugs, however this year a coating of the slug pellets repelled them and the marigolds have made a fantastic show.'

'I use Slug Gone not only because it is an excellent slug barrier but also because it is a very good slow release organic feed. The product also retains moisture which I find very beneficial for all vegetables, but particularly celery and runner beans, Slug gone is also ideal for hanging baskets. I have had lots of success growing for exhibitions and a lot of this success I owe to Slug Gone.'

'Slug Gone' is made from a by-product of the wool industry. It comes as chemical-free pellets, which, when watered, will expand into an itchy mat that slugs and snails fear to cross but which does them no harm. The benefits are three-fold. Apart from deterring slugs and snails, it makes an effective water retaining mulch and a cabbage collar. This will thwart pests laying their eggs at the base of plants and the resulting larvae hatching out perfectly positioned to gobble up your crops later on.'
Slug Gone pellets are made from British wool.
The pellets are wetted to expand and form a felt blanket-like barrier which won’t wash away and which remains active for 12months.
The potassium naturally in the wool (there from the sweat of the sheep) absorbs slime from the slug’s foot and the wool fibre’s fine scales, small barbs and abrasive particles, make the pellets gritty. The pellets form such an abrasive and irritating barrier that the slugs won’t cross it and they go off to find easier feeding elsewhere.
The pellets hold twice their weight in water, so it acts as a moisture retaining mulch and weed suppressant and the phosphates, potash and nitrate naturally occurring in the wool act as a slow release fertiliser nourishing your soil.
