The Mystery of NPK

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 09:21

Thanks for this thread - always up for learning the science in bite size chunks !

A question - what does seaweed extract do on the NPK front?  And things like tomato feed are high in K - but do they have any of the N or P too?

Morning all

what are you planting Lily?  Hope project GH is proceeding up in Tracey-land

I will be planting a couple of flowering pots of tete a tete - have some gaps i want to fill and will never get the placing right if i wait for bulbs in autumn.  And some lovely pulmonarias -opal and trevi fountain - company for some i bought last year that are doing really well.  Then some weeding  & tidying - bit of a mammoth job that needs tackling a bit at the time.

hope Punkdoc is out of the kennel now

i used to ride too Lizzie, but never had my own horse.  Hope the lesson helped you get back in the swing.  Bedtime now - garden is waiting tomorrow! Hope the wind dies down for those in the firing line this evening

Its the weekend tomorrow.  Lots of garden plans - some pulmonarias to plant, the weeding/tidying mission continues, and time to start feeding my clumps of bulbs ready for next year.  Hope everyone is on the mend.

Tracey - you are right - they do grow up quick.  But remember to enjoy these teenage years too (although sometimes have to search a bit harder for the fun bits ).

Love sibirica nut - scarlet is such a good colour in the winter.

Your favourite pergola rose

I have an iceberg climbing over a pergola with shropshire lads growing up the front pillars - the white seems to work with the peach.  I went for it because i thought it might be difficult to get another pink that doesn't jar with SL.

Morning peeps.  Misty start here - but the weekend is getting closer.  Starting to see magnolias in bloom on my way to work, although no sign of mine yet - almost 2 months earllier than last year!
