Growing swede in raised bed?

Posted: 09/03/2016 at 13:58
Swede is one of the vegetables - celeriac is another - that IMHO is far better grown in a field by a farmer. They are very cheap in a greengrocer's. Otherwise I think you will be back on here asking why your swedes are no bigger than tennis balls.

Climbing Hydrangea

Don't give up on it as it's quite slow to get started, but once it does it grows fast. Lovely plant and a shady north-facing wall is just what it likes.

No it is not too late. You have a choice. Take a chance and maybe get a crop or plant nothing and definitely not get a crop!

Hedgehog Help

Dog or cat food are ideal for hedgehogs. I'm sure you can set it up so only the hog can get at the food. The only danger as its been so mild is that the weather takes a turn for the worse.

I second Willow Herb. Hoe it out or pull it up.

Use trays without holes in the base.

Willow arch - how to make it NOT grow?

Tape the end of the whips is the only way I fear.

Brandling Worms

When you add them to the soil they die. But by that time their job making compost will be done. They will have left behind eggs and youngsters in the compost bin to keep up the good work.

Brandlings are not young garden worms; they are a different species.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

With so many orders coming in at this time of year, I don't think any supplier would analyse their orders to see if people were ordering in concert.

It is pretty obvious certain suppliers don't look at this site or they would up their game! Ordering from certain firms should not be a lottery; it is such a waste of time, money and energy.

garden containers

I agree, if they will be in there long-term they will need all the soil in the container.
