Surrey, United Kingdom
I planted my first lot of broad bean seeds in October. They were about 2" high and were eaten at soil level. I have now planted two more lots, starting some in my greenhouse. I have covered them in ripple plastic tunnels, but again some of them have been eaten at soil level. It can't be birds. Any suggestions? My son said he had heard you could use flour in amongst the plants? Anyone heard of this? I will try it - watch this space!
