HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 06/02/2016 at 16:15

Bit late with this, the posts move up so quickly, here's a link to Trago, they employ a lot of people, ok maybe they pay minimum wage, I don't know, but the West Country folk can be quite poor, and the ones that do want to work may be happy to get any wage at all. there's not a lot of employment down here,  the staff always seem happy, and I have seen that some of the staff have been there for years.

also to add, there has been a Polish village next to Trago for 70 years, I suppose they would want to employ Polish people.

As luck would have it, I acquired a max/min thermometer today. Now to find a sunny position on a south facing wall 

it didn't cost  70.00 did it fishy, I wouldn't be growing anything in my green house to warrant that sort of money. Just wait for the weather to warm up then you know the temp will be ok in the greenhouse.

no sow by date in T&M seeds

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 19:03

Unless they are very very cheap or even free, I don't buy T&M seeds.  Not always reliable.

Nematodes do work very well as long as the soil is at a certain warm temperature, if you have a huge garden it works out very expensive though, so a few strategically placed pellets, covered, will work out cheaper.

I actually don't find it any quicker with the part 2 threads than the original ones. I would also like to have gone back to the end of the threads rather than the begining. Maybe Nora could put originally started by..........

Just what I said on another thread.

but we do have to have 'improvements' All sites do it, nothing stays the same.

when a site is locked, can we still quote something from that thread?

seed sowing

Posted: 04/02/2016 at 22:46

I rely on Natures Own and sow them in Spring when it's warmer.

I then start them off in the kitchen or the conservatory then put them in the greenhouse when they are ready for pricking out, i dont put seeds in plastic bags I find they go mouldy.
