Is it unusual to find snail/slug eggs inside a bag of potting compost, have to say my immediate reaction is to dump the lot ! but what a waste of money.... I have googled snail/slug eggs and cant tell the difference from the pictures but they were definitely what were in the bag.

Thanks! Dorothy on Twitter says "I think they are snails eggs. I have found similar in my garden."

I wouldn't throw it all away. You could leave it open to dry out - and pick 'em out when there are birds around who might eat them for you. The soil is full of them and most plants grow pretty well. Perhaps I wouldn't use the compost to plant very snail-friendly plants like hostas, but you would be fine if it is geraniums.
