Tui Quash Slug & Snail ControlFind a Store
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!

Nothing quite says spring has arrived like Daffodil’s do. These well-known garden treasures come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours and types. The days of only bright yellow Daffodils being available are gone; now you can find numerous shades of white, orange, lemon, cream and ivory. There is bound to be a Daffodil to suit most gardens, and they’re almost fool proof. Ideal for picking for the vase as they last for over a week.
Simple yet delicious, this recipe pairs two popular garden harvests for a tasty dish the whole family will love. Many of you have summer spuds ready to dig or already dug from the garden. With a dash of lemon, butter and fragrant oregano (freshly snipped from the garden!) you can spruce up your roast spuds.
