Stored home made liquid seaweed feed...

Posted: 30/01/2013 at 21:40

I have some cartons of liquid seaweed feed along with a bin 1/3 full of the stuff, left over from last year. Shudder to think what it must smell like.

How long does it keep for? Is it better to make a fresh batch and dispose of this lot? The seaweed was taken out of the bin last year so it's just fluid in there now.

Moving flowers...

 I planted seedlings of Bellis, Sweet William and foxglove in a nursery bed last year to over winter with the intention of planting them into the flower bed this year. They look healthy, although the bellis have holes in their leaves, I thought it was slug damage but not so sure now as slugs don't leave perfect round holes

I'm going to grow veg in their current spot so it will help to know when they can be moved to help me decide what to grow in their place. When is the best time to transplant them? 

Also any ideas as to what may have left holes in the bellis 

   

What's the weather like in your area?

Wet and windy hre. Came across a tree snapped in half and fallen into the road. No more panels blown out of the fence though.

3 x 2 sheds

Are you talking feet or metres.!

If feet you could get a bike shed. B and Q did do a wooden one, it wouldn't support a green roof through and extra supports would be needed.  Alternatively a bench with under seat storage, no green roof but you can sit on it.

Cloudy and wet most of the day but was a lot warmer 11C according to the temp gauge in the car. I've acquired two extra re-cylcing boxes! Checked with neighbours and they've not lost any .

Wet and wild here. A fence panel has been blown in too, wouldn't have gone out and noticed it if it wasn't for being bin day tomorrow.  

advice regarding strawberries for newbie

Posted: 28/01/2013 at 20:26

Worried the pots will be stolen, try super gluing drawing pins to the underside of the rim on the pot, most effective, I've only ever lost one pot, when the thief came back for the second time they got a nasty shock and probably had sore fingers for weeks. 

What veggies are you planning on growing 2013?

Posted: 28/01/2013 at 20:05

Sue. Mooli tastes very similar to radish.The small one's can be cut up and used in salad.
