What does rotivation do?

Posted: 10/04/2013 at 13:58

Rotavation is basically just a mechanical way of turning the soil-like digging only with a machine- nothing more-a rotavotor is really just a plough for garden use

It is that simple

How early can I plant out runner beans?

This isn't me getting too overexcited at the first prospects of spring, more that I may have planted my runner beans a bit too early. They're indoors, in 3" pots, but they're about 20-30cm tall already and the roots are beginning to creep out. It seems crazy to repot them though and I'd don't really have room indoors to put them if I do have them in bigger pots. I've got a coldframe that they could go in - although it's small and they're probably too big for that already!

It's surely too early to put them in the ground (although I'm in central London and temperatures are forecast to be 18C by sunday...) but I'm not sure what to do?

Even in London at the earliest -Mid-May

Afraid to say-you did get too excited

Feed and water regularly-but do not put it outside permanently for at least another 4 weeks -it is still too cold at night-you could soon start putting out in the day -but bringing in at night-to gradually getting them used to being outside

Just read through this-thought this was a forum where people were allowed to express opinions -now it just seems full of self-righteous people who think that they are in the right and don't ever question that self belief-if someone does- they get attacked

I find the phrase "get a life" really insulting and should never be used-no matter how angry you are

Thanks MMP for tryng to calm things down

Dont know why you had me so nasty Frank-seems to a nice little gang of fans you have here-who hang on your every word

Joslow-not sure what you mean?

I am getting very confused about all this-sems to be a lot of sniping going on

Joslow-not sure if this is the right thread for ranting-just got told off for expressing my opinion elsewhere-perhaps I might get a friendlier reception on here-do you think so?

Dont come on here very often know -to busy working all hours to survive-still see Frank describing the place I work as Tospots -despite me asking him not and how much that annoyed me

Think of the staff who work in supermarkets-we don't have time for a cheery chat-or the inclinatioin most days-there is nothing more annoying than a customer who wants to engage in conversation we have a job to do and want to get on with it-why do people feel the need to get the wallet or purse out at the last minute-what a surprise you have to pay !!

As for those who cant cope worth self -service tills-words fail me -is is not brain surgery and is so much quicker-I am surprised some of them can park their cars without someone doing it for them

Oh and the carpark is not a place to dump the trolley either!!

End of rant
