My lettuces are being eaten from underneath, clean cut right thru root. Is it too late to save them now, or is there anything I can do? They are in the veg patch not in a greenhouse or seed tray. All info on internet seems to assume they are small and in trays. Cutworm and root larvae seem to be the cause. Worried it will start on rest of patch when all lettuces are gone, losing one a day at the moment. Appreciate any help. Also, live in France so access to garden centres a bit limited, local one just seems to sell rose feeder and spray. Could always do internet purchase if know what to buy.



Are they still small enough to move safely?

They probably are, but not really got any room, been doing a sort of rain dance with hoe, trying to chop the nasties in half. Also used a dilute mixture of Jeyes fluid in watering can tonight - desperate measure, do or die!
