So we just moved to an urban setting. The garden front and back are kept beautifully with manicured lawns and floral boarders. However obviously I want to do away with them and plant food. Potager style.
I just got the keys, got out of the car and realised that the whole growing area is coated in blue slug pellets
Not going to lie its made me a little upset and has kind of ruined my buzz for the new house.
So how do I go about remediation of the site?
Would removing every single one by hand even do any good as I'm sure most of them will have washed down into the soil already?
I hope you don't have any cats, cats seem to love slug bait pellets and it will kill them rather quickly.
Besides scooping up all the pellets you can get some button mushrooms and other species to make a slurry to pour on the treated areas, that will help remove the toxins from the soil.
We love visitors, that's why we live in a secluded cabin deep in the woods. "Buzzard's Roost (Asnikiye Heca) Farm." Promoting permaculture to save our planet. you can call me Dr. Redhawk
Ok, what i meant was: not so dry (or better loose) that you suck in all your soil. My soil is quite loamy and firm, if i had slug pellets on it, i could easily vacuum them away without getting anything else in the bag. Then i could dispose of them as i see fit. If you got loose soil, you will end up with a bag full of dirt. I can see your hesitation there.
A berm makes a great wind break. And Iwe all like to break wind once in a while. Like this tiny ad:
