i put netting well actually its the green stuff builders wrap round scaffolding to stop stuff dropping off it works and i put pellets down for slugs plenty of washing up water is retained for putting on my plants and does the job for me .... i dont think i could get by without my sprouting broccoli and as for broads and runner beans they are a super must have..yes you are going to have ups n downs but the alternative is the tasteless rubish sold at supermarkets i lost all my toms last year with blackrot its soul destroying but move on remember the next time you walk up the path with some sweet 100s in your hand throwing em  in your mouth  all gone before you step indoors ..peas popping the pods trying your hardest not to pop them in your mouth mmmmm yummy
