Yellow Courgette
I put two of my reserve courgette plants out. The last two were eaten by slugs and snails. They’ve survived the night despite the wet, a good sign.

Slug Fence
Made from cut up seed tray. Will this work? I doubt it. I’ll keep up my slug and snail patrols every night to be on the safe side.
