This is an organic gardening secret that everybody should know!   Deter snails & slugs naturally.

Save eggshells & coffee grounds & sprinkle them around hydrangeas & roses. The calcium is good for the roses & the coffee grounds make the soil more acidic for the hydrangeas. Organic Gardening - How to Deter Slugs and Snails With Eggshells

In early spring, when hostas are coming up, mix 10 parts water to 1 part ammonia, and pour over plant and soil. This will kill the 60,000 eggs each slug lays per year - Yuck! When the plants are grown, you can continue to put some of this mix in the ground, or spray directly onto slugs

This guide is about keeping slugs off hostas. Slugs are a common pest to Hostas and can munch large holes in their leaves. To protect your hostas, especially those growing in pots, cover the soil with used coffee grounds. Not a slug in sight!
