You will only need 0.85m³ for that planter.

I have never seen a recycling centre giving away free compost but if you have one I would check out the quality first. 

You will not need to change the compost every year but you may need to add to it with soil improver and nutrients.

Gardengirl.. I love Morning glory but I would not use it in hanging baskets. As the name suggests It also only flowers (opens) in the morning and prefers to clime upwards.

Don't let this put you off though.

It looks as if the soil has been placed in the greenhouse in large concrete beds, its not connected to the soil/ground underneath.

I'm a bit confused. Are the concrete beds just like a low bath filled with soil?

Can they be removed and new raised beds added so you are in contact with the soil underneath?

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.
