Have slugs and snails been munching on your carefully tended seedlings and plants, before you get a chance to enjoy them?

Tui Quash is a revolutionary low hazard formula which effectively controls slugs and snails preventing them from ruining your plants, and is safer to use around children, pets and wildlife than alternative metaldehyde or methiocarb based slug and snail baits. The active ingredient, Iron EDTA Complex, is also used as a food additive, a medicine to cure anaemia (iron deficiency) and as a trace element fertiliser. It is rated less toxic than table salt for people, yet is a potent stomach poison for slugs and snails.

Tui Quash lasts longer under damp conditions when slugs and snails are most active. When it breaks down, plants can utilise the iron chelate for healthy growth.

Use Tui Quash throughout your garden to protect your seedlings, potted plants, vegetables and flowers and enjoy a slug and snail free garden!

Active Ingredient: 52.3g/kg Iron EDTA Complex in the form of a pellet.

Benefits

Directions for use

Precautions:

Wash hands and exposed skin thoroughly after using. Tui Quash contains a taste deterrent to deter consumption by children and pets. The active ingredient in this product is Iron Chelate and does not contain metaldehyde or methiocarb. Tui Quash may be attractive to dogs, keep away from dogs.

    Holly's Lemon & Yoghurt Cake

    This lovely lemon cake was made by Holly as a thank you to her neighbour who often watered her lemon tree over the hot summer. It’s a light and fluffy lemon yoghurt cake, sandwiched with a lemon mascarpone filling and tangy lemon drizzle on top. It takes no time to make and is perfect for those who don’t like overly sweet cakes! The tartness of the yoghurt balances it well. Be sure to use proper Greek yoghurt not thickened sweet yoghurt and fresh lemons for the zest and juice.
