Reusing pots and trays

Is a tea bag those net cases around some plug plants you can buy.? Hate them, cut them off as soon as the plants arrive. 

I always thought that about square pots Philippa,  but after planting out something I bought in a square pot, the roots had gone round and round just the same.

It's a Salvia

They do a lot of damage to the garden, my dad used to plant a row of runner beans and it would go from one length to the other, dad would plant them back and next day, up again. In the end he got a trap that did work, he's now a dab hand at it, knowing which way and where the runs are going, now teaching the skill to my OH as dad is almost 92 there will come a time when dad can't do it!

Before anyone says Ah, live and let live, there's about 20 or more miles in all directions from here where this is nothing but forests, fields wide natural verges, they have plenty of room, just not in my tiny corner of a field.

Have you tried nematodes for hostas Hosta?  Are some in dedicated beds where nematodes could be very effective?  good control for slugs but not snails though I think 

Nematodes do work on the slugs around Hostas, but mostly it's little tiny snails on the leaves that do most damage, don't know if there is a nematode for those?

Think Dove is right.....their "dna" controls when they die down not temperature.

I think you would be wise to listen to Hollie.

grow some things that people like, at the seasons they want them and use your local farmers markets.

they are doing exactly what you have in mind but direct instead of online. 

Thats very competitive for a beginner so start of small and see how you get on first.
