Well some great ideas and advice, thanks all. Flora_etc I have recently started to save my eggshells rather than put them on the compost. I was going to buy some Hostas which I love, but have been decimated by snails/slugs in the past, and use them for that, but it might be a good idea to use them in my cold frame. Several of my friends keep me supplied with duck eggs which have much thicker shells, so they might be better at keeping the slugs at bay. That's just made me think of seaweed, which I have good access to, as its very brittle and sharp when it's dry, so I can try that as well. Yarrow2, I like the idea of your cold frame. I'm not a DIYer, so I like to keep things simple!.....and it does the job. Right, I'm going to try those websites.
