My sweet peas did very poorly this year- they were all Spring sown but the lack of Summer played a major part in their performance. Late flowering & then covered with greenfly. They did a lot better last year.
I will be giving an Autumn sowing a go again this year. Last year all my Jillies got eaten, I thought at the time by small black flies. Now I know it was the slugs
Pat12- I've never heard of that compound before- did a quick google. No wonder it's harder to get hold of, wouldn't want to use that anywhere in my garden. In no way am I a chemist but that compound is really strong.........I think that it would kill/damage a lot. Not for me.
