Hostas are always popular for their showy foliage, but slugs and snails can ruin your plants overnight. Although there’s no such thing as a slug-proof Hosta, these RHS AGM varieties aren’t as susceptible to hungry molluscs. Their thick puckered leaves are blue colouring makes them far less tasty and much more resilient in the event of an attack! Grow our slug resistant Hosta collection in shaded borders and containers.
T&M top tip: Prevent lush growth on Hostas by not feeding quite so often and watering only when necessary. Leaves will grow thicker and sturdier, making them more slug resistant.
