Hi everyone hope u are well.
Have a question re carrott seed.
I grew some under glass then put out when strong enough in soil before all the rain in hertfordshire area lost the lot.
I now have some more seed and a bed to put it in.
the only problem is that it is slug city never seen so many I have Runner beans in the section near to where the carrotts are going to be sown and they have been eaten alive by the little menaces.
I have purchased sharp gravel and put it around the runners and this works.
But I don't think it would work for the carrott seed.
Would it be best to start off in a cold frame and then when strong enough transplant to main border or should I just use deep flowerpots and the old deep trough that I have doing nothing around the garden?
