I've tried every year but not had any joy. We have got a septic tank and I like to plant bedding around it. Does anybody know of an ordinary bedding plant( I don't mind growing from seed) to go around it, that the slug nation don't enjoy a banquet on. In the past I've planted 50-60 plants around it and gone out next morning and half of them have been eaten. I've even tried slug pellets.
Got any ideas

No I don't mind annual bedding and as I say I don't mind growing from seed myself. I just want some plants that slugs don't like the taste off.
