Music in the Garden

Hi, Frank, nice to see you around.

Not sure where  you get this idea of our difference of opinions about music, we have lots in common. Certainly Bert Kaempfert & James Last are no strangers to my collection.

david, you'd be proud of my harsh-lazy-treatment of mine, esp the autumn ones,and they are looking well..let's hope they stay that way out in the garden!

I'm always impressed with your efforts, rosemummy.  and if I lived nearer, I would be only too pleased to be your gardener.

Remember, those little ones who demand so much attention now, will soon be less demanding and will probably be helping in your garden.

I would say they're fantastic shots, pundoc.....basic or not, I would guess your camera has some sort of zoom lens.

Well done.

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.
