Morning all , a friend  in Wales on the allotment where  we used to be neighbors phoned me yesterday ,he,s a good gardener and has 2 large allotments now,his latest thing is the very large used farmers tractor tyres ,he has 4 set in a square which makes 4 nice big raised beds and one in the middle,he says he,s not painting them because its an allotment and insists they look ok,and are working very well ,he points out that he walks on the tyre walls to work the soil so no soil damage and are dig free,they cost only a couple of pints of beer to deliver as the farmers have to pay to dispose of them, Trevor matey i give you ten for trying

Nin your nettle tea is good for giving strength to young plants due to the nitrogen content,dilute it to look like  weakish tea then later on for fruit and flowers Potash is what they want, get your timing right and your good to go, if your near the coast Seaweed is very good for micro nutrients my figs love it, good luck.
