Space the plants out adequately to allow for good air circulation so it does not become to crowded and humid within the leaves. For Slugs and Snails, it is important to keep the area around the plant debris free and as dry as possible, especially at night as slugs and snails love damp conditions. You can use barriers such as egg shells or copper wire to surround the plant to prevent slugs and snails reaching the leaves. For Aphids, check the leaves regularly for any possible infestation. If you see some, try to pick the bugs off with your hands and spray the infected area with some soapy water. You can also plant a companion plant nearby, such as Marigolds, which will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the aphids.MORE
