What a performance to make compost if youre ever in Devon you could call in and find the easy way to do it, then I’ll take you to Hostafans and find an ever easier way πŸ˜€

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,

Changing a pond

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.πŸ™‚

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.

what to do next

You need to get them in individual pots as soon as possible, I wouldn’t plant them out this side of winter, keep potting on as they fill the pots, keep in cold frame of cold GH and plant out next Spring.

Is that all you got from an offer of 36 plants, another fallure for T & M 😱

Are those the ones you have to boil for hours because they are poisonous or is that a myth?

I can only assume that you are keeping it in a container with a heater on a thermostat, is that the case.

if so, I don’t think any gardeners on here would do that, its a ...put everything in, stir it up and wait for it to cook, so the short answer to your question would be.....we haven’t a clue because I don’t suppose anyone ever does it.

As for all contents sifted, I don’t understand what you mean, sieving is usually done when the compost is ready to use, I can’t imagine trying to  sieve fresh vegetation.
