Ooooooh Nooooooooooo :-(

Something has eaten ALL my cape gooseberry seedlings. Every single one of them. They were just starting to germinate. They take a LONG time to germinate. I went down this morning and there is nothing whatsoever in their seed box. Nothing. No sign that anything had ever been in there.

I assume it was slugs, though there is no slug evidence.

No cape gooseberries for us this year. It's too late now to try again, I think. They take 3-4 weeks to germinate and I don't think there would be time to ripen the fruit if I start again now.

Definitely buying an inside propagator for next year!!!
