ph levels

Posted: 29/11/2014 at 14:41

Wouldn't add sulphur or anything there marksman.  My ph is around 7 which is perfect for most veg including onions.  Garden compost mulching will help levels too.

I once treated a raised bed to flowers of sulphur to grow summer heathers, pieris, azaleas etc.  fine for a while but top up applications were needed.  Sulphur Over dosing?  Not sure if it's wise in veg patch

Black Friday bargains

Local gc full of Xmas trees....boring.  No hydrangeas and certainly not variety I want.  No sales but there will be one soon and again after Xmas.  I have my eye on a couple of conifers there ...Salino has whetted my appetite again for pinus  Wintergold and a rather special,Picea.  Half price and I will be there

VitAmin D as a supplement I think is essential.  Via fish oil.  Sunlight ...getting plenty of that today, it's been non stop sun so sufficient in summer but a daily supplement of vit D during the winter is important I think

what bargains?  Black Friday?  Went out this morning to the shops but no bargains ! (

the great outdoors is calling me.  Sunlight glistening on dogwood stems and miscanthus flowers from here ...and it's so warm
