Thanks Dove, I’ll watch that programme, loved Tom Petty, that’s the third Wilbury to go 😢

i am taking advantage of a full day’s good weather and heading out to Otterham Station to earn some pennies. 

Take care on the lake Hosta, don’t capsize🙂

What feed did you use with the John Innes, no bought composts have an indefinite amount of goodness, you have to add feeds,   whereas, if you pile lots of homemade compost on your ground you will enrich your soil and it will regenerate what it needs because it’s in good condition.

i never put any feed on my ground, just our compost.  Anyone that knows me, knows my garden does really well.

So yes, I would argue with that if you didn’t extra feed your plants that you just put in bought compost you can’t use that as a comparison.

please don’t think I’m knocking what you call your hobby, collecting, food processing etc, if that’s what you want to do then so be it. You could be doing a lot worse, as Dove mentioned earlier.

I think someone needs to get out more. 😉

Bulb advice

Posted: 05/10/2017 at 00:04

I plant the biggest ones back, not till November though, the little ones you can either slip in with those or put them in a different container, I use a trough they will grow some green but the bulbs will get bigger. You can them plant the biggest out next year. 

The tiny ones won’t bloom in 2018, that’s this coming Spring, but you will get some to plant at the end of 2018 for flowers in 19,

Just one more little tip, make it as big as you can get it, or afford, whatever size you choose now, you’ll always want a bigger one.🙂

I don’t think many of us would make compost in our greenhouses.

i currently have 5 large farm containers, a giant builders bag 7 compost sacks and two wooden bins full, all made and ready for spreading this autumn. 

Turnover of two months. No way that could go in the GH.
