GWRS, sounds like mice may well have been the culprits. Many moons ago, when I as a lad, I helped my Dad on his plot and he also sowed direct in the ground in. November, always seemed to have a good crop and little blackfly trouble.
Janet, good idea,I can't see why you couldn't try them in the GH and treat them similar to sweet peas. I think I'll try it myself and see how they compare with direct sown.
Gardengirl, fingers crossed you're on the mend soon.
