I planned on planting a veggie garden against a fence in my yard however, I currently have 3 knock-out roses on the other side of that fence that I'm treating for Rose Slugs. Will this affect my vegetable garden or should I plant elsewhere?? HELP!!!

If you use one of the least toxic control on the rose slugs, your veggie garden will be safe. For your rose slugs spray the leaves thoroughly on both sides with insecticidal soap, neem, or horticultural oil. Best wishes with your roses and your veggies.
