Bekkie  - Comfrey is rich in potassium (K), which is required for fruit production, and also nitrogen (N). A liquid comfrey feed has a higher NPK ratio than farmyard manure.

Nettle tea has an NPK of around 8-5-20, wonderful stuff.

A combination of both is even better.

David I thought he wanted a transfer

Not sure how much truth is behind that, KEF......but money is god in football these days and players with his skill can virtually name their own price.

Well, TBH I wouldn't be too concerned about the first two pics, but the third looks a bit like me i.e. seen better days. I think this has resulted from a dry atmosphere.....try mist spraying on warm days.

Epsom salts (sulphate of magnesium) is to balance a magnesium deficiency.....which is what I think yours doesn't have.

Yellow leaves are a sign of magnesium deficiency.

Bet Monty Don don't know that!

David,what do you do with the rhubarb leaves? Do you stew them or something? Does the solution keep well or does it need using straight away?

Can give you the recipe, OL..but briefly you boil the leaves for about 20min, allow to cool, strain-off the liquid, add a few drops of washing-up liquid and really is effective and totally organic.

PS. No, it doesn't keep.
