Horse Manure - When to Use

Posted: 30/03/2017 at 07:25

When you say next year, do you mean spring 2018


Why are you not growing stuff this year?


its not a good idea to use fresh manure direct on the beds at this time of year. i would stack it to rot down and use in the autumn, of add to your compost heap in layers with other materials.

Bolting red cabbage

I always think of red cabbage as a winter veg, to be sown in the spring, planted out in the summer and harvested in the autumn/winter.  


I imagine that having come through the winter, your cabbages have experienced the temperatures warming up and decided that they're in their second year of growing and it's time to flower and produce seed to further the species.  


Have a look at your seed packet ... when does it suggest you should sow the seeds?
