State of Water in Water Butts

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 17:57

As I'm not fit enough to clean out my water butts, although the water looks reasonably clean, I use this water for my flowers but use the hose for veg.  I just feel happier doing it this way.

Rocket Salad Leaves

I agree flowering rose.  I seem to remember when I grew rocket before that it was peppery which I liked.  Couldn't understand this time.  I've now sown a winter mixture that I sounds good.

Hi everyone.  Does anyone know what rocket salad leaves should taste like?  I recently sowed some seeds of rocket & had a lovely crop.  I tasted it when it was quite short & when it had grown much taller & it was quite bitter.  I've now consigned it to the compost bin.  Thanks for any help.

I've noticed sparrows seem to be attacking the flowers on my runner beans.  Would it be for the nectar?

As I try to be as organic as possible in the garden (often a bit of a struggle), I always enjoy Monty. I would love to see Long Meadow.

I'm still concerned about using compost on vegetables made from green waste, but what else can we use? Any ideas?

Strawberry Plants

I'm growing my 2 plants in a fairly large pot.  How often & how soon should I start feeding?  I have a couple of small fruits formed.  Many thanks for any help.

Am I right to be concerned about using compost made by Council's from green waste.   When weed killer is used i.e. on lawns then grass is sent to green waste, does treatment destroy weed killer.  I'm thinking about bought compost used on vegetables.

Strawberry Pots-What Size Please ?

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 17:28

I'm growing 2 plants in a medium sized pot on steps outside my conservatory. I used my own homemade compost.  The fruit is now forming. Will I need to give additional feeding? Thanks for any help as I've never grown strawberries before.
