top soil or compost?

Posted: Yesterday at 18:08

top soil could be no better than what you already have.  Humus in the form of compost, well rotted FYM or composted fine bark or bracken will help any soil.

If they are outside, I think the cold has got them. Garden centres are selling far too many tender plants with no warning at the moment.  I saw runner bean plants for sale four weeks ago. They would have stood no chance.  I planted my  bean seeds today, and they will be inside for another three weeks.

Fizzy pop bottles are stronger than glass bottles if it ferments.

I use the plastic milk cartons.  I do keep the main volume of it in a dustbin and just keep topping it up with nettles.

I potted on 12 tomato plants today. Some were a tad large so I sank them well in the bucket and added plenty of compost and a cane.
