Tomato Feed

Posted: Today at 10:28

In the April issue of GW there was a review of Tomato feed (pg 126), the winner was 'Chempak Soluble'.

Thomson Morgan have an offer on for 12 x 1kg packets at £50. (normal £9.99 for 1 x 1kg)

Also if you use Tesco club card boost £5 for £15 voucher you can get is for £9.95 inc postage. This is the same as the price for 1 x 1kg packet.

Its a lot of feed but a good offer so stock up!

New large shed needed - help and advice much appreciated!

 Firstly I would put your old sheds on eBay you should get a pretty penny for them. With the added advantage  that you don't have to dismantle and dispose of them.

Next you really have two choices,to buy kit and build it yourself or buy the timber and do it yourself. Doing the latter may cost you a similar amount but you would get a much better quality shed but obviously you need a competent DIYer to help you do that.

Well so far this thread its 14 to leave and 1 to stay, another case of the polls being wrong!

you can get 20/1 on percentage of less than 40% voting remain. Might be worth a tenner?

Dahlia cuttings

How long can i go on taking Dahlia cuttings? I still have plenty of material but want to give the plants time to establish.

Also what the maximum size of a cutting some stems I have are around 12 inches.

Do you think I could just split a large tuber grouping in half with shoots on both and plant separately?

Green House Auto vents

Not sure where I am going wrong here. I am following the instructions but sill not working.

How do you set these things?The current temperature in my greenhouse is 36'C and they are only open 2-4 inches.

I have tried taking them down and putting them in the fridge and refitting. The instructions are not that good.

I am fitting to a wooden green house. when i fit them (cold from the fridge and fully closed)  then I wind the rod in a little bit until the windows is open a few mm. I have 4 and one it at the maximum extension and still only open 1 inch.

Any ideas?


Mulching with Bark

Posted: 11/04/2016 at 10:40

Hi All,

I have two questions the first is whether or not is a good idea to mulch now?

If i do then obviously thats stops the weeds etc BUT should i let the soil warm up a bit first? If I mulch now won't I just stop the sun getting to the soil?

Secondly I got a price for a bulk bag of £60 Plus vat delivered but my local GC sells them at 3 for £15 (so 15 Bags at 100L for the same price).

Anyone know how many litres you get in a bulk bag? I assume it must be less than 1500L?
