What to feed veg ?

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 12:39

Hiya nin, yes fish blood and bone is perfect for all your veg

I,think fidgetbones is correct.......he seems to be saying "feed the soil" first and this is my thinking too.  Don't like Gromore fertilisers ...I,think they can be too strong and being artificial not to my liking.  Plenty,of compost, muck etc dug into your ground is the best way.  Plants in pots, however, will need weefeed liquid feeds summer long

I know Fairygirl.  To think that Scotland may opt out of being a part of the uk is disappointing.  We need the connection with the scots, welsh and Irish .....

Talkback: Lily beetles

Only seen a couple of lily beetles....never see many anyway.  I squash those I see.  You can spray and I do occasionally but best not to I think.   Tending towards thinking more of wildlife these days and awareness of chemicals used in home and garden.  Beware pests!  I still will use sprays if I have to ....on ants esp
