i have some plants that are getting nice and tall/thick, but slugs are still chomping down on all the new growth even with copper wire around the base. this really pisses me off, because daylight starts getting shorter fairly soon and i want my plants to build as many bud spots as possible before they begin to flower. they even gnawed through part of the stem on one of them! has anyone ever tried putting fine crushed glass around the base of their plant(s)? between the law, parents, and whoever the hell else, i can't believe my greatest foe is the slug.
