Brassica Problem

Posted: 25/09/2015 at 11:21

Thanks for the replies. I will clear the whole lot out and take to the local tip, then sterilise the ground with Jeyes Fluid, leave to biodegrade for a month, then as you suggest, dose it with lime. then add the nutrients in spring. Hopefully in 12 months I can report back as problem solved.

Brassica Problem

For the past 2 years I have had a severe problem with leaf rot. At first I thought it was lack of air due to too small mesh butterfly netting. This year I have changed the netting for one with larger mesh but the problem has returned. Any Help welcome.



weedkiller in peat-free compost??

A couple of years back there was a problem with weedkiller in compost. I think that this has now passed but for info this year I have found that one of the top makes of compost was rubbish, yet Homebase own brand is brilliant.
