Hi Everyone,

I've been growing stuff using clay balls.

I've grown a few things that start up really well and then die all of a sudden.

The tomato plants seem to unaffected. However my cucumbers, snow peas. And now my my parsley was growing wildly and all of a sudden there dieing.

As I pulled the plants out I noticed worms within the root system.

Is it possible that the worms are killing the plants?

Have you checked for slugs

Numbers can build up in the growbeds

I have an extension for my standpipe so I can deep flood my growbeds ive adjusted my gravel depth so all gravel goes under water when the extension is on

I leave the bed deep flooding for 24hrs

Slugs have to come up or drown when I first did this I was getting 50 to a 100 slugs a bed ,every time I clean out and replant I do this I only get a few now

Worms are an important part of the system they process fish waste and plant roots when plants are pulled out

Check for slugs , snails , earwigs ect go out at night with a torch

Can you explain more,how they die?
Wilting,yellowing,browning,black or white speckles?.Or maybe a lack of Oxygen as the roots get bigger,disease.

With the latest the parsley. A few branches start to wither. Then after approx a week the whole plant just goes limp, turn yellow and die. Had 3 seperate parsley plant. One went limp. Then within days the other 2 followed the same pattern.

Will try flooding it. See what pops up.......

I flooded the system and left it for 24hrs.

Only found about 6 slugs and drowned a lot of spidermites.

The parsley is commig back to life. Might needs to perform more pest drowning.

Cheers
