You could try sowing the seeds in seed trays until they are big enough to plant out, then ruthlessly hoeing off any weeds in the bed, then planting out your little darlings

Aww man! Seedlings...

ph2 love wonderful cleaning lady in London used to bag up her snails and take them to the BBC park (that's probably why they moved their operations to Salford) I believe that snails will return from a fair old distance...I'm hoping that the hurling well...kind of...KILLS THEM!

Pure joy, an old friend has just sent me a card to say she has moved to Bristol

Haven't phoned her yet, but it would be great if I could stay there when bringing plants down; how fortuitous would that be?

Something was starting on some seedlings in the conservatory, I poked around and found a small snail clinging to the side of a pot... bas...rd, he became a flying the field next door

Snail hurling is quite a sport in these here parts

Need advice on very small, boring garden!

Ryan, bless you, have just looked at your profile and I am sure you will succeed, but which area are you in? and does your wonderful mother (what DID you get her for mother's Sunday?) mind helping out?

ph2, can you pm me on your post code so I can try to co-ordinate things?

OH, ph2 I did not realise what you are up against! All I can suggest is weed suppressing membrane over the whole lot; cut an X for where you are planting, and then pea shingle the rest. That is what I had to do here for a large area that had just been field before, but then I made slightly raised veg beds and because the weeds had been suppressed for a year or 3, it seems to have worked.
