Brilliant everyone. I have seeded some nasturtiums so hopefully that will help.

Is Enviromesh the same as/similar to garden fleece?

I really don't like the idea of using sprays. I did rot down in water and drain off some rhubarb leaves. Disgusting smell and didn't do too much prevention work. Will try all suggested thanks

Hi despite covering my sprouts and cabbages with four layers of fine netting the cabbage whites managed to get underneath and lay their eggs. My best efforts to pinch out the eggs resulted in a considerable number of caterpillars developing. I managed to pick some out but the remainder caused damage. Anyone got any advice here. Farmers crops never seem to be affected??

I lifted my Maris Piper potatoes yesterday. I washed all the mud from them. What is the best way to store and keep them in good condition for eating?
