Using Growing Success Organic Slug Stop Barrier Pellets

Results Guaranteed with Growing Success

Our Growing Success Organic Slug Stop Barrier Pellets are an effective slug and snail barrier suitable for all crops and plants and can be used all round the garden. Our pellets not only protect the treated plant, but also the neighbouring ones because slugs and snails stop feeding. The wool pellets allow slugs and snails to still feed on the neighbouring plants causing damage to your garden.

 

How Slug Stop Barrier Pellets work

Our pellets form a physical barrier around plants and crops that make it difficult for slugs and snails to cross and suppresses feeding. When compared to wool pellets, the Growing Success pellet is neat and compact and keeps its structure when wet. It is easy to apply with no need to water in and proves effective in all weather. The pellets go further; protecting more plants and crops in the garden. They are long lasting and after use the organic pellets can be incorporated into the soil which acts as a slow release fertiliser. Below you can see Growing Success on the left and classic wool pellets on the right.
