Grow Your Own / Re: What I did on the plot today 2018
« Last post by Plot 1 Problems on June 21, 2018, 22:07 »
Finished tidying the plot ahead of judging for our local allotment awards and grabbed my first proper harvest of the year :D
Found the wind had removed the netting off the brassicas, but mercifully the daft pigeons hadn't noticed!

Grow Your Own / Re: using as phosphorus fetilizer
« Last post by rowlandwells on June 21, 2018, 22:07 »
thanks John there does seem quite a saving buying on line and I take your point about buying  bonemeal as a substitute the Vitax I was looking at was 10-7.5-10.2+TE if that makes sense but I think I may give that a miss

I manure every second year with horse manure Snowdrops and use growmore and a nitrogen based fert for my brassicas but your absolutely rite feed the ground first priority  I will also be sowing  some green manure very shortly as trial

the only reson i was asking about phosphorus fertilizer was  it seemed worth tying  having spoken to a fellow gardener but on reflection as said  i am going to give this one a miss

anyway thanks for those comments RW

Still dry, warm in the sun right up until a gust of wind hits and makes it feel like early March.

Growing in Greenhouses & Polytunnels / Re: An entire empty border.

Spring onions - 6 sowings so far not 1 germination (newly purchased seeds went in yesterday for sowings 7 & 8)
DFB - There's a row of climbing french beans outside already.
Courgettes - 2 plants already in the beds outside, I can only eat so many  :lol:
Brassicas - isn't it going to be too warm in there?
Leeks - bit late to sow. I didn't bother earlier in the year as the allium leaf miner normally takes the lot.

I also put some coriander seed in yesterday; old seed but you you never know.

Off to check the seed box for beetroot, chard and parsley seeds.

Im tempted to try germinating some salads (fresh seed) in the house where it's cooler as there's a shameful lack of green and leafy on my plate of late.  :nowink:

Is this border in the greenhouse then?
