South facing garden subject to strong winds bouncing off nearby houses. Soil heavy loam on "Norwich Brickearth" subsoil.
After loss of entire carrot crop last year to slugs I am experimenting growing them in peat pots and then planting them out as soon a first seed leaves appear. HAS ANYONE ELSE TRIED THIS TECHNIQUE?
Very keen on Broad Beans, peas, and French beans. I am concentrating on sowing 3 varieties of each in succession with about 3 weeks between each sowing, having had a glut last year.
Remainder of garden planted with perennials & shrubs.
