Plant food

Hi Max, i use FBB in April and nettle tea for getting the plants started then comfry tea after, (added potash for fruit trees ) also any sea weed that i can blend , indoors i use miracle grow because my partner bought me some ,i think indoor food is pretty much a muchness, But i only use a third to half the recommended dosage of any of them.

Good luck.

Cuttings

Posted: 16/07/2014 at 09:46

Morning all, my best result so far are Early morning cutting into a container of greenhouse warm water ( no cold shock,its bad enough avin your head cut of without freezing to death)) and iv noticed slightly better results with cut plastic bottles for over the pots and if cold frame full better protection from rain, the bags sag,nothing worse than a saggy old --------- foodbag,ava good en,
