Tomato Seedlings Dying
I've grown tomatoes from seed for about 10 years now but this year, the seedlings have started dying :-(
It look a bit like slug damage but I've never know the local slugs eat tomato plants. I've not noticed any slime either. When not posing for the camera, the plants are in a mini-greenhouse so cold weather damage is unlikely. Especially since some other more sensitive seedling such as Physalis are unaffected. Hessayon suggests woodlice. Might be the answer because take a look at this monster grafted plant and in particular the area in the red box. The damage on this lower branch looks like something ate it. So it's probably not a cultural problem.
