GROWRIGHT is an industry led stewardship programme, offering advice on the various methods of controlling slugs and snails in gardens and on allotments, including the responsible use of metaldehyde slug pellets.
The GROWRIGHT campaign is encouraging gardeners to use only the right amount of slug pellets in the right place, at the right time. You may need less slug pellets than you thought, in the case of metaldehyde-based pellets it is just 3 to 5 pellets across an area the equivalent size of an A4 piece of paper. Only put pellets around the plants you need to protect and they should only be used when slugs and/or plant damage is seen.
Users of control products must always read the label carefully before application.
