Garden snails - Knowledgebase Question

Question by tsherwin

Is there a list of parennials that snails and slugs will not eat for USDA zone 9 (Western garden zone 14)?
I now live in a gardening zone that has lots of snails and slugs as garden pests. I've never had to deal with these pests before. I want to plan a new garden with only the types of perennials that snails and slugs won't eat. I'm hoping someone has a list.
