Cheers for heads up, Ladtbird 4.....fits what I'd heard. Shame!!
sadly, Bob, no water butt & the 'greenhouse' is a plastic one!! No windows to remove & plants are too tall to move outdoors. I asked my mate who's looking after house if she'd keep an eye on the ones outside ove the last few years......always return to dying plants! unsure why she never does it & don't want to p her off as she keeps house safe!! Asked neighbour but he said he was worried he'd forget. Sigh! I actually had another mate offer to come over one day.....she works about 4 miles away and lives 30mins away......soooo good of her to offer but I feel bad asking her to travel so far!
tried some experiments yesterday. One tom has a top dressing of the water crystals, one has half a tea towel in a tub of water with plant pot resting on other half & 3rd one has half tea towel in large milk carton of water with the rest draped on soil surface.. (Toms have lots of surface roots, I believe). Also tried string through top of bottle, hung upside down with string end in soil but that was rather meh! The other 3 all seem to have worked so far. All water gone from small tub, also half milk carton empty. So far so not-bad-at-all!!
