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.
N.B. Fit a Hothouse Cover to your Slug Collar / Hosta Halo to turn it into a mini hothouse.
"I think I have every slug and snail in Orpington, but your hosta halos really work. For the first time my lettuces are coming along a treat" Mrs S. of Orpington.
"I've just put in my third order for Hosta Halo's, and wanted to drop you a note to say that this is one of the best products I've come across in years! For the first time my husband and I have been able to grow delphiniums, hollyhocks and dahlias in our Cornish garden (slugs and snails LOVE Cornwall!); and our runner and French beans are more successful than ever before. For the record, we're also using the halo's for young lettuces, brassicas - it's going to be a tasty summer! Thanks very much for your great service. All best wishes" L.S. by email
