Hi . my sprout and broccoli young plants have had their leaves eaten to leave not much more than stalks . Will they recover ? Alan C



Unlikely, you'll need to sow more and protect from slugs, snails and birds.

Thanks for that. Got 1inch square mesh to protect from rabbits + netting over top + slug and snail protection ! still no good . Do you know whether mice , voles or other small creatures that can get through mesh will eat the young plants . Alan.
