I am so disappointed with the failure of both the broad beans and the lettuce but have now bought a couple of plastic cloches to cover the lettuce seeds I am due to sow. Hopefully that way they will germinate and develop without being snaffled by the slugs. Not sure if I with bother with broad beans again - it might even be too late to get those into the ground. I'll have to check!
