          @ CarolineL I check all round quite a few times a day. When the plants were a few inches tall I sprayed with a Lilly Beetle killer, this appears to work. I do have slugs eating a few though.

          I've been in Lockdown since March so I have plenty of time to walk up and down the garden.

              Hmm @john558 you must be better at it than me. I check mine frequently, but the little blighters sneak out and eat when I'm away.
