I have never tried them but I do know that they are preferred by many market growers so i do not see a problem.

aged manure advice?

If it is 10 year old then it will already be composted. Get as much as you can and use it. 

Bell Pepper problems

It sounds like sunburn or sunscald. The affected areas/spots act as avenues for fungal attack.


Select pepper varieties, which are not prone to sunscald. Control leaf diseases and insects using sprays to minimize the rot.

Matty2. You have posted screen shots of this page.

When you find the URL you want copy/paste it and give it a few seconds to down load.

I also find that pressing return ( move to next line) after they have been posted helps.

You must be having a laugh.  It all depends on what you planted.

Turning a compost heap without hurting the wildlife

Posted: 02/03/2015 at 14:44

If your compost heap has worms in (red wigglers) then there will be no need to turn it. This might be what attracted the slow worms and toads in the first place. The warmth is another factor.

how to bulk up soil?

Posted: 01/03/2015 at 15:14

If you have any turf left you can place it upside down on top of each other and then make it into a box where you can add compost-able material. It will all compost down over time.
