A large Slug Ring protecting the tender new spring shoots on my favourite delphinium.

Slug Rings are 2 inch (5cm) high solid copper rings which are placed around individual plants to keep slugs and snails out. These pests detest crawling on copper, so Slug Rings make a very effective barrier. Since the copper rings cause no harm, you can have healthy plants and healthy slugs and snails too.
Slug rings come in two sizes, small approximately 4 inch (10cm) diameter for single stem plants and seedlings, and large approximately 7 inch (17cm) diameter for plants like delphiniums, lettuces and lupins. Larger rings for plants like hostas can be made by joining two rings together.
We invented copper Slug Rings seventeen years ago for our own use. They protected our plants so successfully that we started manufacturing them and since 2002 we have sold hundreds of thousands of rings.
Slug Rings are guaranteed to last a lifetime, they can be used over and over again for season after season.
