Blue berry bushes

Posted: 03/03/2014 at 12:12

Last year a friend bought me a LIDL fig,i fed it on a little nettle juice and well chopped up seaweed for 3 months, it is absolutely a beauty now and ready to go into a pit ,so sometimes the Lidl  stuffs good as well as cheap,, my Blues  will be in ordinary 12 " pots as it seems they dont like big pots too soon, and lots of people here recommend pots better than open ground and it solves the soil composition as they say ericaccous is the one. good luck matey

Talkback: How to grow peas

Hi newboy2 yes twigs not strong enough and as u say difficult, in the end we bought 2 lengths of semi rigid farmers type fence the one with 2 inches square mesh  one metre high sold at any length , Farm supplies sell it very cheap and it last forever ,we always find these suppliers  very helpful and cheap.

Hi Bella, i can highly recommend Hurst Green shaft they are a cracker with heavy crops. 4" apart for us and 12" between rows this makes it easy to use both sides of your supports,we used a metre high chicken wire.

Secure Garden Shed

Hi Dave, they look good dont they, a friend of mine has 3 of them,the problem we both found was  with shed ,garage etc security is as we all know, as a  lock only stops an honest man,iv just had an approach light fitted to the garage that need not wake the neighbourhood as i can point it almost as close to the actual doors as i want ,i will do the same for the new shed when we get it,pointed a little high so animals dont activate it, yes we think they work well,  good luck Dave
