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.

Hi Soolar,a few years ago i planted a p/f in a good big heavy terracotta pot about a couple of years later or so it had escaped the bottom of  the pot and went into the worst soil/rubble in the garden and spread over 30 feet on an iron fence it was stunning ,i hardly ever watered it,strange plants Passions and a good pot is the way.

Ps I had to saw it down when when it became just unmanageable, i have one now and i keep it a reasonable size in a Pot .i really dont know whats wrong with Santys  Good Luck,
