    Three sowings of carrots before finally getting a crop.

    It may not be anything you’ve done Dix, quite a few of our plot holders myself included have failed with carrots until we found the small black slugs were eating them as they emerged, also parsnips and beetroot, a few slug pellets cured the problem

    ony 3 Dix – given up on them completely here, planted some seeds in the autumn which should have over wintered – they appeared and then the slugs had them, have decided that was my final, final, final attempt – could grow them when we lived in Yorkshire but up here or over here no luck so far – – – apart from in the greenhouse during the winter, manage fine with that method

    There are many rather exotic large slugs in Gertie’s Garden but the most menacing nuisances are the tiny ones, blacks and greys, that live under the the soil and come out to eat when you aren’t looking! gggrrr!!! :lol:
