Slugs And Earthworms

 

 

Slugs are not welcome in the garden. Earthworms are. Here is a sure fire way to make the earthworms happy and get rid of the slugs.

Coffee grounds are one of the most favorite foods for earthworms. Slugs, on the other hand, avoid them.

Place spent coffee grounds around hostas, roses, strawberry plants etc. and keep the slugs away. As coffee grounds can make the soil acidic if used too heavily be aware of your plants soil requirements before using a large dose of coffee grounds.
