Slug Collars / Hosta Halos are designed to slip over the tender shoots of hostas, delphiniums and other herbaceous plants in borders to protect them from BOTH slug and snails. They are also great in the vegetable garden to protect lettuce, rocket, runner beans etc. Simply push the ring a few cms into the soil and the angled lip effectively keeps slugs and snails away from your plants. During trials in my garden I also found they protected plants from over enthusiastic hoeing and mulching as well! Use early in the season for best results. When the foliage grows out over the ring apply Nemaslug® to complete your slug control programme. The Hosta Halos can then be stored and re-used countless times. Dimensions – Height 12cm, diameter at base 13cm and diameter at top 18cm. Pack of 18.
N.B. Fit a Hothouse Cover to your Slug Collar / Hosta Halo to turn it into a mini hothouse.
Hothouse Covers – Hothouse Covers fit on top of the hosta halo, turning it into a mini hothouse. These covers allow sunlight in and then holds back the warmth, making it ideal for protecting and encouraging growth in spring and autumn. Once the plants are established simply remove the lid during the hot summer months, leave the halo in place to protect from slugs and snails. Ventilation holes prevent overheating and allow water in, so you do not have to remove the lid to water. The cover also provides protection from pests, heavy rain and hail. TheHothouse Covers are available separately for customers who already have halos or buy packs of Slug Collars and Lids together and SAVE MONEY!
