natural snail repellent

I'm thinking about using sea shells as a mulch around my jumbo garden sacks. I'm having trouble with snails. They are also very good for tomatoes because they give the plant calcium. Calcium (or a lack of it) causes the end rot you get on tomatoes. So when we go to Texel, I want to bring back buckets of shells to crush. I may even buy some online. I need allot of shells!

The sea gull must soar, must draw back far first. The nectar must be mellow, must for a long time ferment first.

I think this means some things take time. A good word for me!
