waste fish tank water

I think all the nutrients from the fish waste would do it good referring to the emptying of the tank.and cress use to be grown on blotting paper and water cress is grown on just water,clean water but I would imagine it would have to be running water.

I love Marigolds,I grew the common old fashion ones this year and they such a long lasting show and were the only plant that did so well.I grew them on my front border and they looked stunning even if I say so myself.I wish you a very happy new year and may it bring you a lovely summer and happy hours of garening.

They have a 3 year cycle,so they wont fruit very well the first but 2nd year is when they fruit the best ,the 3rd they are spent,and so it starts again.
