Garden snails are herbivores and eat plants.
They will eat the leaves of many plants and vegetables. It will also eat rotting fruit, lichen and algae as well as fruit, vegetables, herbs and arable crops.
Snails particularly like lettuce, cucumber and herb leaves which are freshly picked. They will feed on carrots and apples.
The key to their diet is to see what grows naturally around the area where you found your garden snail.
