Any news on Frank? Has anyone heard from him x

I noticed he posted on another thread a couple of days ago, BM.....'TV'  think it was called.  So it seems he's still around.

What fertiliser to use on my allotment?

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 11:07

The general idea is to get your soil in good heart first by digging in well rotted compost to improve soil structure, this will encourage worms and so the cycle goes on.

After this, a top dressing of choice may be added at planting time...this may be blood fish and bone meal, Vitax 4. There other fertilizers available for specific purposes such as bone meal which is a slow release fertilizer and used mainly when planting out trees & shrubs.

Truth is you need to understand the NPK table, which explains the  three  main plant foods ie Nitrogen, Phosphates and Potash. Then familiarise yourself with the requirements of the crop you are growing and choose accordingly.

Bit of a pain, but it takes much of the guesswork out of it.

"But they are not on the list so Hen Harrier next best."

TGB, your choice of 'peregrine falcon' is appropriate & just fine.

I started this thread specifically to give the opportunity for us gardeners to have our say.....absolutely nothing to do with the national survey.
