I am going to plant out some Chard/silverbeet question the pidgeons attack this vegetable...they leave my spinach alone so I am hoping I don't have to net these chards...
Thank you



I grew some last year - didn't notice the pigeons eating it but the slugs did.

Thank you, have put them out along with some greyhound cabbage so included a net over them all...will take slug protection as you know how to keep slugs out of the more mature cabbages as they get ready for the table...?
Thank you

I am afraid I used slug pellets (very un pc) but I am not a one for going out at night with the salt or a pair of scissors!
