As I said I would photos.... I hope the photos show.. The security light from next door have not been effecting an ongoing bountiful harvest (flowering / fruiting) as said by others.  With regards to slugs.. WoW!.. the lights do indeed seem to keep the slugs away.. they gather on the patio near where the photo was taken but don't slide up the lawn towards my vedgetables - and in effect towards the sercurity light!.. We may be onto something here.. The lettuces are pristine . Regards, Jon

Thankyou for all your responses.. I'll pop up a photo soon to show the progress, and a photo at 'night time' to show my floodlite vedgetable patch!.. Many thanks all, my mind is rested. Happy gardening to you all

Hi, Ive just moved into a flat (renting) that has access to a small garden and have spent the bank holiday preparing a small vegetable plot. Ive now planted the 'usual' suspects.. potatoes, chard, corgettes, spinach, runner beans, cucumbers  etc..and have a small plastic greenhouse that my tomato's are in. Next door is a sercurity company, and this building backs onto my garden. At night, two bright 'security' light come on that shine over my veggie patch... Will this effect my plots performance (the plant possibly thinking their getting 24hr sunshine? The 2 lights are of a typical orange hue... 

Advice is appreciated..

With regards,

jon (veggie patch).
