I'm in! Am going to try three growing methods:

1. Direct in the soil - which is best but I managed just one plant last year from about 20 seeds, largely due to slugs & snails

2. Direct in a big pot

3. Start in small pots and transplant once big and strong enough to withstand a bit of attack from rampant molluscs.
