Hi speaking from experience ,the house weve just bought had a long veranda and was turned into part of the house with double glazing all round three sides,cold in winter hot in summer nice first thing in the morning, BUT we now are extending and a Must is do not have paneled,bottoms when you glaze as this is where the heat is lost,so we are using brick bottoms and double glaze gas filled windows, Argon gas windows  works out as good as tripple glaze and about half the price..,,just thought id try to save some money for anyone thinking of double glazing stuff.  Sunny ere in Norfolk  avagooden

Help making feed for plants

Posted: 24/04/2014 at 20:51

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.
