Last year I sowed 10 rows of carrots, one after the other as each time the seedlings raised their heads they were eaten by, I assume, slugs.
I treated the soil with nematodes but to no avail. I cannot use slugs pellets etc as I have a resident hedgehog and loads of frogs in the garden.
Tried again this year and had very successful germination only for them all to disappear only three days later.
I know it's a perennial question but does anyone have any ideas. What is really odd is that the 3 years previously I grew fab carrots with no issues. Mr hedgehog wasn't resident then.
I do grow some in pots but it's not the same.
