The Salt and Vaseline Experiment

This year we are trying a new form of slug and snail defence by smearing Vaseline around the rims of pots and trays and then adding salt onto that with the hope that slugs and snails won’t cross. A few internet searches have suggested that slugs and snails don’t like crossing Vaseline, so here’s hoping it works. Adding the salt to the vaseline afterwards has been a bit tricky and messy so as I write this I have had a thought; I shall pre-mix the salt and Vaseline to make a salty paste that I can apply in one go.
