Helix Tosta 1, Slugs 0


Here a UK based Gardening Homeopath relates how she prevented Slugs from eating her peas with a dose of Homeopathic Helix Tosta.

Homeo Gardening

006 I don’t normally have much luck with peas. At first, I thought they weren’t germinating, but I have since realised that the slugs have been getting them. This year, I decided to do a pre-emptive strike with Helix Tosta 6x. This is a remedy made from toasted snail shells, and has been proved to be very effective against slug and snail damage. The 6x potency has a much higher amount of the substance in it than 6c or 30c.

Homeopathy for the Garden. Workshop – Sat 11th May ’13


Homeopathy for the Garden. Workshop in Donnybrook, Dublin 4.
Saturday 11th May ’13 10.30am to 3pm – €45 fee. (€20 unwaged)

Meadow GrassesWould you like a pest-free garden full of robust, productive plants?
Would you like to achieve this affordably, sustainably and without toxicity?

Come to a practical workshop exploring the theory and practice of Homeopathy for the Garden with Mark O’Sullivan, homeopath at the Heritage Community Garden. Learn how to use the remedies that here in the garden we’ve used successfully against slugs, sawfly and aphids.

Learn how to select, prepare and apply appropriate Homeoapthic remedies that:

  • repel slugs, beetles, larvae and other pests in a safe, effective, non-toxic manner.
  • – heal fungal and bacterial diseases
  • – balance nutrient excesses & deficiencies
  • – restore damaged or traumatised plants and soils

Mark has been applying Homeopathy for gardens since 2007 and teaches this across the country, including at Seedsavers, The Organic College, the Organic Centre and Sonairte. When not treating people at Appletree, Ranelagh, Mark studies organic gardening at the Heritage Community Garden and qualified as a Permaculture designer with Rob Hopkins in 2004.

Here at the Heritage Community Garden, we’ve used Homeopathic remedies to rid our gooseberry bushes, that were almost destroyed, of a sawfly infestation. Our 200yr old apple and pear trees, that were brutally pruned and badly mistreated have been reviatalised by the application of remedies and our bean shoots were saved from the slugs by the remedy Helix Tosta.
