Thanx Bob - it's all good clean stuff

What time of year is best? Can I add it to my compost much in Autumn or is it better in Spring?

I have quite a lot of wood ash - how do I best use that?  It's so fine that it wold blow away sprinkling it straight on the soil or can I mix it with nettle juice and water it in?

I've done OK with Verve for seeds and pots but agree it doesn't seem to last well in pots so I'm going to go for something better now as I've got a lot of things to pot on and don't want to be wasting water (or time).

So thanx for the tips for Humax & Erin's Excel
