It seems that the flowers (marigolds, cosmos etc) I have sown in seed trays in an attempt to attract beneficial wildlife always seem to get totally bull dozed by the slugs and snails.
And so I was thinking of creating a fort knox seed area underneath my two squared metre cloches where I can simply put seeds sown in seed trays and hope that the following measures will stop the slugs in their tracks:
1. laying the seed trays on a bed of sharp sand(?) or a similar product to help make slugging over it difficult.
2. using organic slug pellets sprinkled within and around the area
3. having a few beer traps within the IPZ (intensive protection zone) LOL.
This area will be reserved only for plants which I keep losing to those slimy critters.
