Allotments and community gardens

Slug pellets containing Metaldehyde  have been banned, they can no longer be sold or used in the UK, as of Friday 1 April 2022, as they pose an unacceptable risk to birds, dogs and mammals.

There is plenty of information on the internet to encourage natural predators into your plot or garden, and for slug friendly deterrents. Slugs play an important role in planet-friendly gardening and maintaining a healthy ecosystem.

More information is available on the Royal Horticultural Society website.
