I make nettle feed every year which I mainly use to feed my pots on the patio. Can I use it on runner beans too and other vegetables?
Hi thanks for your responses. That is what I was thinking - about the leafy growth rather than promoting the fruit production. Am now on the look out for comfrey
Comfrey feed is fantastic stuff! I only use that and fish, blood and bone in my garden and greenhouse and everything does well. Be careful where you plant the comfrey though as it is difficult to remove once you have it! An out of the way bit of ground where not much else will grow won't bother it. Look at buying a potted plant or root cuttings of comfrey "Bocking 14" as that is sterile so won't seed itself everywhere.
Does nettle feed smell to high heaven or did I do something wrong?
It does smell like cow manure stinky, I have put mine in 2ltr drink bottles to keep them lasting well and to keep smell away, you not done anything wrong
Give me cow manure anyday this stuff is terible. What can I put it on and do I have to dilute it.
This is probably a really silly question, but I'll ask it anyway! If it's good for leaf growth can you use it on lettuce? Our lettuce is growing well at the moment but I'm wondering if the ground nutrients will wane when we plant lettuce to replace the current ones as we eat them?
Yes, it would be just what is needed for lettuce
Ooh rhubarb aphid spray sounds good. Not heard of that before.
