I found out by accident one day that slugs hate coffee. I had spilled some from my cup while working in the garden and a slug nearby reversed course and "ran" away from the coffee. So I began saving used coffee grounds and sprinkling them around my plants. Slugs will not go near it! Use only black, no sugar, leftover coffee or grounds. Not only will the slugs stay away but plants love coffee! Coffee makes a great fertilizer too!

In case you didn't know, Starbucks bag their used coffee grounds and give them to anyone that wants them for the garden. You can also use your brewed leftover coffee or tea on roses. GG Vi
