How can I protect vegetables from pests?
« on: 24/12/2008 15:56:50 »
GWall asked the Naked Scientists:

My 8 year old twins and I planted a small garden yesterday, maybe 8 by 10 with broccoli, lettuce, onions, and carrots.  The carrots we planted as seeds, the rest are small plants.  How can I best protect them against snails and other pests?

Thanks

What do you think?
