In previous years my lettuce and salad leaf crops have been grown in the greenhouse but this year I will be growing most of my lettuce outside because I now have some superfine insect mesh to help protect them. I will also be using slug pellets (sparingly) because the netting will prevent the local wildlife accessing any slugs unlucky enough to come into contact with the pellets.
