Thanks, most of the veg i grow are doing OK, i have raised beds and we live on the top of a hill so flooding isn't a problem, slugs, snails and rabbits are. I decided to try the potatoes in pots so as to have more space for other things in the beds, they have been a success but only i think because of all the rain and if we had a drought i would have struggled because we have a private water supply so its back in the ground next year.

the ones on the left were sown in guttering in the greenhouse

middle direct and right in guttering the last lot were put out a week ago

the sweet pees at the back edge of the bed are a complete disaster
