This is what you need Sophie, nothing gets past this, make sure it's well sealed to the soil, they get in any tiny gap.

They don't grow plants, there is an offer through them but the plants come from Van Meuwen, is that the same as Thomson & Morgan? I know they are owned by one of the well known plant suppliers.

Very close mesh needed, not 1/2 inch, and even then, don't let it touch your plants, she will lay eggs through it.
I bought a roll from Amazon, not expensive and well worth it.
With cabbages, you have to make sure the ground is very well trodden down, they like very firm ground, can you do that with your raised bed.

Sunny and dry and warm out of the wind. the wind though is cold.  Right now the wind has fallen light ...ominous for tonight then with the clear skies   In the west it has been good today but the east of Cornwall has has sleet, snow and rain. 

it is quite a mixture of weather 

I can vouch for that, seems funny pricking out seedlings in the snow.

Well, Topbird, I certainly wouldn't spend 6.00 on pants. Not one pair anyway

Compost is my biggest outlay, don't spend on plants though, maybe just the odd bargain from Morrisons.
Someone can spend ??94.00 now and still keep the average up;)

Plant ID - Rhubarb?

Same here scroggin, I bought my seed from Amazon, sown one year, picked the next, that was three years ago and they now have crowns easliy as big as you would buy.
Some people can't afford to buy several fully grown plants. Seeds are very good idea.
I wonder if the OP sowed his seeds in a warm greenhouse, or tried to sow them straight outside and only weeds have sprung up. You cannot mistake a rhubarb seed.
