My seedlings

Posted: 24/03/2014 at 09:19

I have never put anything in a platic bag. My seeds germinate well on there own, they get very damp inside a bag. Up to you though. There is no rush to bring them on quickly, they will germinate well under their own steam.  you cant put them out for ages yet even in a plastic greenhouse. Tomato, peppers and cucumber plants are very tender at the start.

Gosh Mike, what a load of plants! I have never done a soil test, just a bit of lime on the cabbage patch(in case)

Plants get put in the ground that I like, i do sort out for sun or shade lovers.

The Gardeners world mag have done a survey and have said Westland john innes seed compost as the best.  But then a year or two ago, Which mag voted Verve as the best compost and that is awful.  I dont think it matters much with seed compost, seeds will germinate on anything, try blotting paper or kitchen roll. Its the next stage where you need a good compost.

Am i right in thinking that your council will supply bags to dispose of this every fornight.  I absolutely hate bonfires.

Erin is nice compost but so free draing you will need to keep an eye on the watering.
