Beware the sleepless slugs!

April 29th, 2016

Episode 943 of 1273 episodes

Gardeners should brace themselves for a generation of ‘sleepless slugs’, conservation charity BugLife has predicted, as a wet summer and an unusually warm winter has meant the animals haven't gone into hibernation. Pippa Greenwood, from Gardeners' Question Time, discussed the inundation of the molluscs and what we can do about it. (Image: Garden slug. Credit: Thinkstock)
