Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 05/04/2014 at 20:19

Oh, forgot to say; picked up loads more pots from Moat Road nursery apparently it is too labour intensive for them to clean all the pots so they normally re-cycle them. I think a lot of nurseries do that, so it is a good source of pots.

I scrub them with an old washing up brush in a disinfectant mix in a bucket and then rinse them.

break23, you are a star. I was at Art College in Worthing; West Sussex College of Arts and Crafts (which of course we renamed West Sussex College of Tarts and Dafts) I don't know of anyone else in your area, do you?...there must be forumatti in Sussex, in such a 'gardeny' sort of place.

Heated Propagators

Posted: 04/04/2014 at 16:14

The rate of germination, I am finding, is much higher with a heated propagator; e.g. 28 tomato seeds planted and 24 germinated, 15 cerinthe seeds yealded 13 plants and counting; have always had probs with cerinthe before.

Will it get much sun? could we see a pic? I'm thinking of doing something similar, but not thorny.

Favourite vegetable to grow?

madoldbat, (love the name) could you divide your growing area in half, and alternate the halves so at least the ground has a break from growing the same thing. In the other half you could grow a non-brassica leafy veg like spinach beet or chard. The chard will last for months; am still harvesting mine from last year.
