Cabbage seedlings safe inside small Slug Rings.
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 wildlife 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.
Slug Rings were invented seventeen years ago for personal use, but they protected the plants so successfully that in 2002 manufacturing began, and since then hundreds of thousands of rings have been sold!
Slug Rings are guaranteed to last a lifetime, they can be used over and over again for season after season.
