Ah...sort of the broken glass for slugs item, huh?  I've often
yearned for a bit of razor wire to put around my Tricyrtis to foil
those slimy critters...maybe this would do the trick and not be as
dangerous to me and the rest of the wildlife:-)  Sounds like it would
be similar to chicken grit for loosening clay soil.  Next time I'm in
my local Home Despot, I'll check around for it.
