As a 'freebie' with my seed order I received a fair sized packet of Caliente Mustard seed, labelled as green manure which I understand. I don't intend to use it in the traditional way, i.e. by digging it in later, but it does claim to be a biofumigant that keeps various bugs away.

Has anyone any experience of this stuff? I wondered if I sowed it in amongst my spuds whether, by burying it as I earthed them up, I might keep the slugs at bay. Somewhere on the Net I also read that it can be used as greens. Has anyone done that?
