Q.purple sprouting broccoli
I planted out purple sprouting broccoli plants in raised beds but something has eaten their leaves in the last few days! There is no sign of snails/slugs and these are the first things I have planted in my newly built raised beds (over a foot high). I have seen the odd small bird around my allotment though. Is it too late to save these plants? They were only about 5 inches tall before being eaten. If they can be saved, do I need netting over the top? Thanks.
I have checked the plants and cannot see any sign of the insect damage mentioned! Could it possinly be birds?
I meant Broccoli!
This is exactly how my garden bed of Kale looked last year!
There are several pests that love to eat Kale.
