You may find the time of year you are sowing/growing is against you.
I get my seedlings going in August, the plants are then big enough to overwinter & will romp away in the spring at a time when slugs are few and far between (hopefully). By the time the slug population gets going you will have harvested most of them.
I found spring sown cabbages just become slug hotels!
Using this method, you also will not have the problem of them running to seed as this will not happen so early in the year.
Hope this helps.
