After my question about seeds in unheated greenhouse - all my brassicas frizzled! The leeks liked the heat and surprisingly lettuce faired quite well - iceberg and little gem - rocket is struggling and a tray of cut n' cum again spicy leaves have frizzled in the heat too! Safari beans and sweetcorn are coming through now. I've planted toms as the seedlings got very leggy grown at home. ! fruit has set!!! I've resorted to buying brassica plants-any grown outside get eaten. How does one grow them from seed? I'm trying not to use chemicals including slug pellets!
Ever hopeful

Brassica outside

Reply from Kathy C

Hi, Jean,
I have actually had success using copper tape around pot bases and lips to keep the slugs away. Maybe you could try your brassicas outside in clay pots with lots of copper tape. It kept the little varmints away from my potted hostas! I did have to replace the tape each season since it did deteriorate somewhat, but well worth it!
