keeping mice off pea seeds
Our pea seeds are being eaten by mice & I wondered if anyone has any tips to avoid this? We sow them in the greenhouse in lengths of guttering & haven't had problems before this year. We also have 2 cats (& another living next door) so imagined we were fairly safe from mice, but yesterday found several mouse-sized holes in the soil in the pea gutters, seeds missing and tiny shoots & roots left behind. I've heard people used to soak the peas in paraffin before planting but not sure if that would be considered safe now? Any other ideas?
