Seedlings are very young plants so they should be protected. It is very hard when you have a big garden and a lot of them. Animals and some vermins and very likely to eat them and to destroy your work so we should protect it. Look at the idea that I found on the Internet! It is about using plastic forks. You just put them between seedlings. Have anyone tried this method? I am not sure if it will work, because when it's windy it can be destroyed. Tell me what do you think!
