SLUG SO­LU­TION

Young spring seedlings are par­tic­u­larly vul­ner­a­ble to slug dam­age but, in­stead of toxic slug pel­lets, try us­ing wool pel­lets, which swell when wet and form an abra­sive mat that slugs find dif­fi­cult to tra­verse.

LET IT GROW

Leave dan­de­lions alone. This early bloomer is vi­tal for bees and other hungry pol­li­na­tors when lit­tle else is avail­able.

LAZY LAWNS

Hold back on that first cut of the year. Even a few more inches of grass cre­ate a much-needed habi­tat and food source for wildlife. Find RSPB ad­vice at bit.ly/mow­less
