*If you have a tunnel cloche, either glass or Perspex, lettuce can be planted into the ground a bit earlier as they will be protected from the harshest weather conditions.
Cutting the base off large clear plastic bottles works really well to use as individual covers for plants. This will protect them and keep them warm. On fine days you can unscrew the lids for ventilation.
* Slug and snail warning…. Pop some slug pellets down around young plants to avoid them being eaten, and check over every day. If you prefer a more organic approach, try putting a ring of sand/grit around your plants as they prefer not to travel across rough surfaces, but again check every day.
I don't know how you guys manage to grow such perfect seedlings. I bought these guys 2 years ago and I had amazing salads all summer - these plugs give a wonderful selection of leaves. Last year I tried to grow everything from seed in a propagater - it was a disaster! This year I'm back to your lil seedlings and when they arrived they just looked so cute! They're well packaged and everything arrived perfectly - this hasn't been my experience with other companies but everything I've bought from Brookside has always arrived looking healthy and has gone on to grow well. I've given up on seeds now and will just buy from you guys every year ♥
