Her are three very fat magots a just dug up from under a wilted caulifower with all it roots gone. As I want to be organic have I just got to accept half will be devoured or what do you recomend as they had been fitted with collars since planting?

they were grown in modules and the root system was healthy before planting.

I had a collar around them to stop cabbage root fly but that was just harboring three small slugs? Last time the cabbage white desimated the whole crop. They sure present a few challenges thats why I've stayed away from brasicas for that reason.

dug up the wilted plants and found little or no roots left but no evidence of maggots or such like- will revert to my foolproof erecting of KEEP OF WEEVILS signs. I will persevere with organic veg growing bur cauliflowers do seem to have the whole world trying to eat them before me.

The daftest thing you've done in your garden

I had a dead old tree at the top of the garden always shedding dead branches so I thought I'll prune that myself on the cheap, great Idea was to tie my very large and heavy spanner to rope and throw spanner up and around tree branch and give it a hoick to remove dead branch, unfortunatly said spaner didn't wrap around branch but headed back down to earth to be cushioned from the ground by my head. The nurses were in fits when they said "you did what".
