A slug barrier
I am indebted to a French gardener in a village near Piriac-sur-Mer for this idea. First take a tin can and with both ends removed, take a pair of tin snips and make the jagged edge that you can see.
Place the tin uncut edge down into the earth and you now have an edge that even the most enthusiastic slug/snail will find too daunting.
