Review

The most oft-asked question to gardening columns is what to do about slugs. This humorous little book offers fifty ways of dispatching these slimy devils of the night. No longer weep over munched delphiniums, no longer curse upon discovering a row of chomped seedlings or scream in anguish over the slimed hosta. From the totally impractical to tried and tested methods of slugicide, this book will have every gardener crying tears of laughter, the cartoons accompanying each tip perfectly depicting the cunning of the soon-to-be-dead. From Dutch slug-eating triffids to kitchen blenders, salt and nematodes, eau-de-yucca to weed burners.. Just show the book to your local slug colony and you won't see them for slime! A great present for all gardeners and worth its weight in gold to every slug sufferer. - Lucy Watson

Format: Paperback
With its small size, its silly cartoons, and its irreverent advice, this book is as much humor as gardner's reference. Would make a great gift for a garden enthusiast, an insect lover, or just about anyone who'd get a kick out of the crazy ways that author Sarah Ford has come up with to combat one of nature's most resiliant -- and annoying -- little pests.
