Root Trainers

Posted: 07/01/2016 at 12:29

This is my theory

When we plant out seedlings the bigger and deeper and  more abundant the roots the better it is for getting the veg started in the open soil.They can be grown longer in the warmth and shelter of the house or conservatory

That said it must be the depth of the trainer that is the main benefit.

I will try toilet rolls on a few plants just to see what difference it makes

? Do they encourage more roots or is it just the depth

? Which plants NEED bigger roots to start off

Allotment People are Special

They are giving , helpful and generous and because they work at the pace of Nature tend to be a bit more relaxed

I wish I had started Allotmenteering sooner

The next few months will be some of the most memorable of your life young'un

Over this summer I have taken seeds from the above out in the country and in a nature reserve

? Anyone had experience of "sowing on " these sorts of plants

I want to use a colourful wind break on my allotment and to assist bees

? Paul

You say you have completed level 1 in horticulture so would it be a good idea to ask your past tutor or his / her current pupils to advise / assist.........obviously if local

Perhaps they could use it in their dissertation 

Sow indoors IN HEAT ?

I looked into a greenhouse but I have delayed my decision until later this year

As a trial......
