Best and worst seed and potting compost

Posted: 18/02/2016 at 10:42

I always use Erin Malloy.

i will try the Wyvale this year though as they are selling on offer four 75 lt bags for 20.00.

seeds will germinate in anything, you don't want rich soil for those, I add perlite For drainage. It doesn't need to be soaked, I cringe when I see Monty Don with that huge metal watering can, go right over the tops of the seeds.

Containing roots- any alternative to rootex bags?

I use the ones that I buy the compost in.

any strips of firm plastic will do.

soil for seedlings

All my sweet peas are up, just in multi purpose, sometimes I mix a bit of seed compost in, sometimes not depending on what I have.

i find seeds germinate in anything.

Maybe we should go to where you and OH get dental treatment Hosta!   Certainly quicker than getting a phone call from our doc, maybe the letter will do some good, blimey, I only want to say six words. 8 day wait! 

I am in a fowl mood, so won't post anymore today, bound to upset someone.

I think you may need to fence it off or something, you say it's exposed to passers by.

lots of choices of plants given, note that bunny grass is barely 6" tall though.

Where are we chucking them too, perhaps we should emigrate

My OH says NHS should be privatised, they would pull their socks up then. It's discusting, when there are more people in the country they should take on more doctors.
