Decking help - which boards and why!

Posted: 28/01/2016 at 10:56

At our allotment we have had to add non slip strips some 12 inches long as we have had several accidents

decking is a current fad and is prone to attracting rats as it provides shelter underneath espescially if there is a supply of water and food nearby

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

At our allotment someone has donated some root trainers

During my voluntary work there yesterday I was asked to use some to start off some sweet peas

? Any experience Friends
