Slug Gone Wool Pellets

Slug Gone pellets were extremely popular last year - they are wool pellets that form a felt-like mat that absorbs moisure from the slug's foot, making it difficult for the slug to cross it.  The wool also contains abrasive particles which irritate the slug's foot creating a natural barrier.  The wool mat also acts as a mulch, keeping moisture in and weeds out.  Slug Gone is a natural, biodegradable protein fibre which releases nitrogen, potassium, sulphur and other trace elements essential for plant growth.  They are also safer than slug pellets for homes with cats, dogs and other pets.  Why not give them a try?!

 

Wet and Forget NOW IN!

Wet and Forget  - NOW IN!  For those of you who haven't heard of Wet and Forget, it is an ingenious solution that you paint on areas that normally get covered in mould, moss or lichen etc, ie paving slabs, walls, pots, even boats!  It has a unique combination of biodegradable selective surfactants for moss & mould removal on absolutely any exterior surface.  When diluted with water and applied, it immediately attacks that unsightly moss, mould and grime. Each time it rains, this safe, cleansing combination reactivates to help flush the moss, mould and grime without scouring the surface it has infested.

*  Non caustic. Non acidic  *

*  No bleach. No water blasting  *

*  No elbow grease!  *

A gentle reminder to our doggy friends .....
