a few questions if I may, that I hope aren't too silly or tedious!
firstly, we've had the wood burner on a lot over Christmas and my other half has been putting the wood ash on to my raised beds for me to dig in. Is this a good thing to do? Is this 'potash'? Is potash the same as sulphate of potash?
last year I left in the roots of the runner beans and was advised to dig them in - I can't remember why! Does anyone know please?
we've been invited to take manure from the nice lady that keeps her horses in a field near our house. If I put this in the raised beds now, will it be too 'fresh' when it comes to planting later in the year please?
Is it ok to plant potatoes in the same raised bed that I used last year or should the choice of crop be changed?
ive started some ami majus off in the green house and they are going great guns, but today some of the leaves were frozen and stuck to the greenhouse glass. Will they survive in an unheated greenhouse over winter?
i also planted some lupin seeds that have germinated and are now a couple of inches tall. Will they survive winter in a unheated greenhouse or should I bring them I doors?
whats the different purposes of nitrogen, sulphate of potash and phostrogen please? Do they conflict with each other?
thanks for any answers!
