Ever been had ??

Just read your first posting Runnybeak, I'd have expected more than one bulb, you must be so disappointed.

I've just bought some replacement joints for a plastic GH, £5 for the joints and £4.99 delivery costs. It's my own fault, I didn't know the make of the plastic GH and assumed joints would be universal...NOT...these are far to big but to get a refund of £5 need to pay the £4.99 return costs... 

Potato planting dilemma

It's far to early to plant now, wait till April. 

New allotment OMG...

I've not started any seeds off yet, was gonig to start chillies, aubergines and a few  toms this weekend.

Looks like a nice stash of goodies Gg. 

My spuds are in a room which gets alot of sun so they are out of direct sunlight, most are about the same as Gg's 1st earlies, although one batch has hardly got going yet. Bring them indoor ginagibbs, they do need a little warmth to get going.

I've some aspargus crowns in the same room which are beginning to grow in their bags. Was on the plot today preparing a bed for them. Made a good start digging over the top of the plot and moved a couple of pear tree's.

nettle fertilizer

That makes sense to use rain water, I've always used tap water to make fertilizer but won't be doing in future.

Shall start feeding them nettle fertilizer, hopefully I'll get a better crop of blueberries

 I think Waveydavey's also asking can nettle fertilizer be used as a feed on plants which like different kinds of soil.

I tend not to feed my azelea's and blueberry bushes but replemish the compost each year with a ericaceous compost and water them with rain water but if they look like they need a feed will buy something especially for them.

Silly Q but from the replies can home made fertilizer be used on them  

Spring is Springin

Spring hasn't sprung here yet, we had snow last Sunday... 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 21:11

I've just got the windowledge propogator out and sorted some seeds to sow at the weekend. Can't wait any longer going. 

It can be really hard to cull seedlings especally toms, I always sow far to many, can't you give some away to a good home Jonesk.

Harvesting Potatoes

I'd save the leaf mould for something else. Spuds do well in MPC, you could add some seaweed as a mulch..  

moss

Posted: 04/03/2015 at 20:50

If you hadn't posted first Kit3131, my advise would have been a stiff brush to take the top off the moss followed by a pressure wash to clear out any soil in the tarmac.

I have the same problem with moss on tarmac paths and go through the same process on consecutive weekends.
