DD   I'm not keen on decking ... it can get very slippery ... I've also found it can provide a warm home for rats and it's very difficult to get at them ... if there was any chance of cake crumbs making their way between the slats it'd be rodent heaven.  

If I was doing it here I'd go for some reclaimed pamments or quarry tiles   ... something you can chuck a pail of water over and give a good sweep in the morning and it'll be clean and dried off in half an hour.  The thing with having the reclaimed ones is that a bit of wear and tear just improves their appearance - Shabby Chic

 I don't know what you can get that's similar in France, but I'm sure there's something.

I'd do as Fairy says in her first paragraph.  And when you handle the little plants, handle them by the leaves, not the stems.  The leaves can cope with a bit of handling, but you don't want to bruise the stem. 

Good luck, you're not the first and you won't be the last to do this ..... and I'm sure you'll get some healthy plants out of it.  Don't worry if they droop to start with ...  and don't over water them.

Don't be afraid to come back and ask any questions ... we like to help.

Let us know how you get on

I agree with Fidget. It'll slow them down a bit but they'll be fine as long as you keep earthing them up. Much better than fleecing. Sometimes both is good, but always earth up.
