Our pet-friendly alternative to slug pellets!
Common slug deterrents and repellents are usually dangerous to everyone and everything that comes near them. From poisonous slug pellets that can harm children to beer traps that can leave your pet with a slightly sore head the next morning! Whilst we want to protect our beloved plants, we obviously don’t want to do it to the detriment of life.
Protect your plants, protect the environment, and keep your children and pets safe!
What if we told you that we have an alternative to slug pellets that can protect your plants, protect the environment and protect the lives of pets, children and wildlife all at the same time?
Surprise, surprise! Envii Feed & Protect is a dual-purpose alternative to slug pellets that does exactly what it says on the packet!
Using a concentrated blend of micro-nutrients, Envii Feed & Protect feeds plants to improve growth and nutrient uptake whilst protecting them. However, the really unique thing about this product is how it protects your plant from slugs. Rather than using a pellet, powder or gel, Envii Feed & Protect slightly alters the taste of the leaves making them distasteful to slugs. As a result, the slugs are not interested in eating them and move elsewhere.
Will this not make my plants taste different?
The alteration in taste is so slight that it cannot be detected by humans. We already have a strong palate that is used to coffee and curry so can’t spot the difference. Fortunately, slugs have a very simple diet of foliage and well, foliage. Because of this, they have a very simple palate and any slight adjustment in flavour discourages them.
It’s a win-win for all! Your plants are protected, benefit from essential micro-nutrients, children and pets are safe and there will be no slugs harmed in the process.
Don’t apply Envii Feed & Protect to leaves in direct sunlight or very dry conditions as it can cause temporary discolouration.

We will warn you though that one of these posts is a couple of years old and does contain some rather old looking packaging that we used to have! We’ll let you decide which post it is.
