omg SwissSue, I was just thinking today that I was likely to perform the same deadly deed. I'm impulsive and work quickly! I shall be more careful, thank you.
BobtheGardener, the idea of burying comfrey sounds a good idea and something to try next year once I have sourced the plant on the land
Good luck, Ging2, they are well worth the effort. Read up lots on the web, I did and learnt loads. Grow Harrier as they mature in 95 days, it has probably been suggested already.
I got busy at the garden centre this morning and have already sprinkled the chicken manure pellets, not a huge amount as it was difficult to spread with the leaves catching them all on their way to the soil. I also bought an organic tomato fertiliser which contained seaweed extract. I watered around each plant with the mixture. I also bought a straight seaweed extract which I shall use in seven days. The tomato fertiliser said to reapply after 7 - 14 days, I reckon using the seaweed one after a week should be good to give them a little lift. If I get my fruits to maturity I shall post a picture (when I've learnt how to do it, I'm hopeless with technology). Isn't it great this hot weather to start the ripening. My first ones are starting to get a slight tan.
