The weather has been very wet this last month. Blooms are early and slugs are out of control. I hand picked them off yesterday. They are back this morning. I see info saying to add grit! Will sand work? If not, then what? Slugs of all sizes. Destroying buds and blooms! Help, please.

It's iron phosphate, which naturally occurs in soil and is safe. I just sprinkle it around plants during rainy periods and never have an issue.
