Forgetting frost which of these require fleece at the initial stage of growing to protect from pigeons etc
I don't use fleece on any of those to stop pigeons.
It won't stop mice eating the peas.
It should stop carrot fly from infesting your carrots.
The main problem I have with wood pigeons is with brassicas. I use Nets and dangling CD,s.
Sometime ago you gave me advice on sowing carots and parsnips in a conical hole produced by using a ametal pipe which I am about to implement
? Does the sieved soil remain loose or does it become compacted
? Could I use compost and FBB in the holes
Sowed as suggested in separate holes and my neighbour has given me some of his saved seeds from last year to sow normally so we can compare results
Fleece for peas for pea moth at flowering time
Pardon my ignorance but does that mean I chuck fleece over the peas when they begin flowering please
For carrots and parsnips I find enviromesh better than fleece as it allows in more light but keeps out carrot fly.They arent cold sensitive so dont need fleece as protection.
