Tony Gipp's snail and slug gizmo.

Snail and slug gizmo

Our gardening guru Tony Gipp has been a long-term advocate of organic gardening - but how does he deal with slugs and snails eating their way through his prized vegetables and flowers? He gets out the slug and snail gizmo.

With the snail and slug gizmo you can grab the creatures without getting sticky fingers or wearing gloves and then release them into a pot.

The tool is 38 inches long, meaning it can reach into flower beds and borders without you have to bend down.

It's safe to use by all the family, in fact my youngest grandchildren love removing pests with it!

It's harmless which helps make gardens a haven for wildlife as it avoids the use of poisonous baits.

All you need to do is make regular patrols by day and night - you can just pop on the attachable battery light in the evenings.

The gizmo, I have found, is the best way to make the garden a relatively slug and snail free zone.

For more information about the gizmo e-mail Tony using the link below.
