Marion, I get withdrawal symptoms if I can't find your thread, as I love to see what you are growing! Mr. Fothergills is very lucky to have you.

I have a couple of acers in containers that I have had for several years. Can anyone tell me what is best to feed them with please? Is there anything specific that I should use?

Hello all-this is only the second time I've posted, but I thought I would give it a go!! Catering Manager by trade, but a soon to be made redundant one, so looking forward to getting in my garden more. My son and daughter-in-law don't like gardening much, so we have turned part of their garden into a little 'allotment' which I have played with over the last couple of years. Had loads of whopping potatoes from it, so planning lots more this next year. As for switching off Tootles, I have trouble keeping my mind on my work already! I think that it must be because I know I won't be there for much longer-and I won't miss it.

Hi Carrotless-What Man of Kent says makes sense to me. Never had good results growing carrots in the ground( a bit sad I know!) but always had fab carrots growing them in deep containers. I use an old kitchen swingbin and I have always had good results.

Is there anything that can go in now for an autumn crop ?

hi joe4eyes. thanks, will keep an eye on them and keep them sheltered. I too have struggled with beans-would not grow at all this year, but now things are a bit warmer they are starting to to get a bit bigger. Also put in a few french beans in a pot in a sunny spot, so will see what happens. Purchased some potatoes for christmas planting, so fingers crossed!

Hello Welsh Onion-was given them a couple of weeks ago and they should be for spring planting I think (Sturon and Stuttgarter). If I am too late, will they br OK  to try in Autumn, or will thet keep for next year?

I have been given some onion sets-if I plant them in big pots and put them in a cold frame,will they grow? Not taken on onions before!!
