What can you plant to keep snails away now

I keep all my egg shells - dry them out in the oven and then crush and scatter them around the plants. (all plants) to keep the snails at bay. This Summer I forgot to do this and the snail invasion was horrendous! I don't know of any plants that would acheive this. Good luck!

Lemongrass has silicone intheir leaves- nasty papercuts! So I chop n drop them when I thin them out :)
