6 posts in this topic

A grandmother and award-winning scientist has urged fellow gardeners to “make friends” with the snails in their garden rather than killing the “destructive blighters”.

Don't really get snails in my garden, so I'm happy to be friendly with them :) We got slugs, and I feel free to not be friendly with them.

I have over a thousand exotic succulent plants in my backyard from around the world. Snails will never be friendly in my book. I have seen them destroy some expensive plants that are very hard to find.

I will continue to throw them in my green waste can when I find them.

I like snails and I don't find them a problem at all, I think its a sign of a healthy garden. Other things like to eat them so I don't agree with poisoning them. This morning I have an ibis walking around and I guess he might like them, so if there were no snails then he might not be here(and I like the ibis).

Anyway I like how at the end of the article she says how snails taught her to slow down and see the world differently. That's how I look at them too. I find them calming and I think they are kinda cute.
