Well many of the seedlings on my Sowing the Seeds page, no longer exist (even those bestowed upon me by fellow bloggers), where their was once a seedling beginning to germinate, there is now a silver streaky trail eek!
Yes, many of my seedlings including the sunflowers have been got at, by the slimey slugs and snails - I am ever so mift. I was already three weeks behind on the growing front due to the house moving, now I have been pushed back a further three- four more weeks.

I know some serious vegetable gardeners will shake their head, but I know most of you will understand. So this year will be a mish mash of seedlings home-grown and not home-grown, but its got me started. I don't want to be defeated by the slug trailers; and yes, I will still sow some of my own seeds - starting tomorrow, the garden nursery vegetable plants will just give me a head start.
