I could be making a toxic stew after recovering seaweed and dried out cow pats from the land grazed on next to a beach and left a bucket ful of both in gallons of water. Any advice on sourcing fertiliser for my allotment? haven't used it yet but I just used seaweed last year and thought i might 'double-up' and use both. Can anyone see problems?

a few months ago I sowed some echinacea in my unheated shed about february and they all produced small shoots but one by one they all failed. are they usuallly dificult to grow? are they suspect to damping off?

bolting onions being munched

Posted: 03/06/2014 at 10:00

last year I bought onion sets which could be planted in October. Well, they have come through the winbter but so far I have noticed about 6 bolted and lots had been munched. Does anyone else try planting onions so early? Good idea or not?

Too early for beans?
