Do you know if I stimulated the release of pollen or was it just a co incidence ?

Smoking Nettles ??

I was digging up one of 5 stinging nettle plants and it seemed that the other plants gave off "smoke " from their flowers after about 2 or 3 seconds

I had not been drinking so I think it was real !!

Anyone else seen this please ?

Horse Manure & Worms

Posted: 01/08/2017 at 10:54

Pete8 and Iaain R thanks for your assistance

The main reason for asking is that the supplier gets busy in September so I was trying to work out if I could get the bags now before the rush.

I have a plot on a 300 x 300 metre site and he is in demand

I have had about 5 separate deliveries from him and some bags had worms and some not and GW members have given me lots of info over the last few years

Many thanks chaps

Horse Manure & Worms

Simple question

If I buy bagged manure and leave it for months will all the worms die off if they cant get out of the plastic bags ?

Thanks for that information which is really useful

? If I buy it now will the worms have processed all of the manure by September and will they then die off

I was wondering about the above fact 

Have I been wasting my time?

Cherry Tree on Monday all covered in cherries................Wednesday all gone

Its the Demon Cherry Monster  

I dont net strawberries or Raspberries

My neighboring Allotmenteers dont net red currants  or black currants

It may be that your neighbours are supplying the birds with a closer source of food

Simple suggestion next season only net half of ALL fruit bearing plants and see if their is a difference
