Where do we start?

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 13:31
Hi Eri, without a doubt the first thing to do is sit down avabeer/coffee and agree to take your time ,a bit at a time and ENJOY its not a chore its a pleasure ,so start at the offey or beeroff as we call em here ,, 2 or 3 bottles is a good start then it will all be much easier ,we have just turned a large part of a field into a great allotment ,pond and all, as the song says Nice and East does it every time,,Good luck loads of free advise just as Verdun says,Alan4711

Ann i found it so much easier after i read the page on ( Ruralmuse.co.uk ) it explained what plants want in a very very simple way, and about nettle tea,you can say that comfrey and nettle tea are almost the same ,good for roots,stems leaves,but lack Phosphorous for fruit or flower ,so this might need to be added later,as the page explains, Dandelion seems to have lots more nutrients including Phosphorous so it seems has the edge on the others, also a too strong tea mix tends to turn the plant leaves a reddish brown underneath as i found out earlier this year but they soon recovered, Alan
