Last year I grew parsnips and I soaked some kitchen roll on a plate with water sprinkled the parsnip seeds onto it then covered in cling film then put on a sunny window sill. kept checking kitchen was damp every so often and hey presto germinated seeds then carefully remove and sow into ground as normal.

Must have been the night for slug hunting, as I was out too. I quite like the fact that all across the country there are little gardners going out with their torches collecting and disposing of these little devils!. I was quite pround of my stash but also horrified as to how many there were. The copper rings look good but what happens when the plant grows and flops over the ring?

Talkback: 100 hungry snails

Posted: 25/05/2014 at 10:50

I have horrendous problems with slugs and snails, my husband made me a veggie plot a couple of years ago but have had to give up on that idea as they were eating everything no matter what I did. Don't use slug pellets as have pets, resident frogs and think its cruel. So I`m now turning the plot into a cottage style garden but the slugs are attacking again. I am gonna have to do the torch vigil, much to my husbands amusment.

They do take over, but I think they look very pretty and come in quite a few colours. Just pull out the ones you don't want. The wildlife like em, look pretty so not all bad.

I love the Sambucus, planted a small one a couple of months ago, but the slugs love it so I`m struggling to keep it. I may go down the pot route with them cos they are stunning

Happy days
