slug rings & showa gloves. I buy repeatedly because they do the job they are designed for. Have more than a dozen of each now!
Would recommend to anyone with nibbled lettuces or flowerless bedding plants! Over the years I've bought just about enough for all my planted out sweetpeas, beans, lettuces etc and no nibbles. Make sure no leaves lie over the edge or the slimey pests will get in - and then feast as they can't get out.

"The bands were incredibly easy to use: you just slot them together into rings or rectangles and push into the ground. They can be used time and time again."
