hi all we used posts and chicken wire, worked a treat ,then we tried farmers round 5 foot fence posts at ??1:09 each and farmers fencing its much stronger cheap and simply rolls up when not required,for beans and peas its perfect, there's a choice of fence sizes small squares or larger we used the 4" square type just right,farmers suppliers are really good for allotmenteers and gardeners and are very helpful to the smaller purchasers,as they said all sales help these days,if your near one givem a try we use them often,

Hello everybody,well im almost back,the move to Mundesley was a disaster the removal company was just a joke, anyway were in the new house and an MRI scan says iv got nerves trapped in my neck so until they operate ( i hope ) i cant walk and all my left side is asleep for a bit,but fingers crossed i could be ok for the summer, SO the gardens waiting for some TLC all the new fruit trees are on order,blackberries,blueberries, as well ,tried to pot a lilly yesterday and fell through the side of the greenhouse literally !! no damage to me but the greenhouse looks sad,,my neighbour builder whos doing the alterations in the house herd the crash and came running but we couldn't get me back on my feet for ages due to both of us just laughing at the daft situation, anyway all ok now and ill try to keep up with you all, hi Dove havnt forgot you mi duck, good luck all ALAN

sting nettle feed

Posted: 17/12/2013 at 11:16
No probs lots of people keep it for much longer as i do,about 6 weeks minimum to bottle it ,i leave it 10 weeks or more then bottle,when you make a lot the strength is important as too strong burns the plants, so weak tea looking is good, i use 15/20 to one as mines quite strong as i do the dryer method not so smelly, remember this mix is good for general growth but come flowering/fruiting time add more potash, or stop the nettle tea and go for a tomato type feed this is good, Comfry is very good as it has more potassium than nettles, the really good one is Dandelion tea if you can get enough of them, good luck Alan
