Wot you hinting at Tetley?  Are you saying you don't like slugs at all?

You may well have seen grubs in the roots ogster but the eaten tops were attacked by snails and slugs. 

Use provado if you suspect weevil grubs there 

What can I plant in this?

Aym, I dont intend to trample dreams but I hate seeing people waste their time and resources.  Not big enough for anything to "drape"........or thrive.  Used as an unplanted feature it could look nice and cost nothing in time or energy. ....maybe small solar shells would make it interesting.

I cover my onion sets/plants with fleece until they are settled in....2 weeks is fine. Stops birds and protects.    Best and most simple way

Ferns look dead right now, some of them, but they are very much alive Frankie.....maybe wait a while 

planted out linum perenne and stipa tennuissima, cut lawns and deep cultivated veg patch.  Soil looks and feels in good heart for sowing more salad crops. 

Mainly cloudy but sunshine now and again this afternoon and it felt pretty warm.

Too small for anything other than sedums or houseleeks.  Ophiopogon will not like ithere at all 

I would have it "nude" standing out of a low growing campanula or thyme
