Grow Your Own / Re: Spring Onions in Containers
« Last post by rowlandwells on Today at 15:32 »
I'm growing several spring onion varieties as you said razed in modules I usually plant out in a raised beds but going to give growing them in tubs a try because they would be easy to pull save going down the allotments if we only want a few at a time  ;)

Grow Your Own / Re: Manuring between onions.
« Last post by rowlandwells on Today at 15:25 »
as I said in my previous reply I was going to top dress the soil on the onion bed with low nitrogen fertilizer but a fellow gardener said if I spread my horse manure then cultivate it into the ground before planting it would be ok

still a bit sceptical about doing this without some advise got plenty of horse manure stacked from last year what would you do horse manure and cultivate in or top dress with low nitrogen fertilizer?

In case you want to grow more, it works well to sow a pinch of seed per small module (about 3cm sq) and plant them out as a clump as soon as the roots have bound the compost together, straight into a windowbox or something similar

For cucumbers, you can sow now and all through April and May.
They are quick to germinate about 6-9 days.
For tomatoes, still fine to sow now.
I sowed a load of different varieties about 7-10 days ago and are already a few inches high.

Do not sow chilli Myself, but April is fine for sowing them.

Chatting on the Plot / Re: Time for the seedling dance again?

We're growing Cobaea for the first time this year, as they can sprawl all over the trellis that other plants cannot reach... (a chum had a wonderful display last year)!
My seedlings took a long while to get going, last year, but once they did they covered the hedge  :lol:  Must have a look to see if any managed to live through the winter  :unsure: as sometimes they do grow again.

The front porch is filling up (you didnt want to use the front door did you?  ::)), the line of seedlings needing pricking out is long but where do I put them if i do...  particularly with the weather getting colder next week ...  :(

I know it is only a month when everything crashes together but what a month!

Just bought some sweetcorn seedlings, and will transplant them pretty soon, as the tap root is so strong, it gets into the polystyrene!

Loads of tom plants to keep an eye on too...

At this time of year I've normally got so many plants I don't know what to do with them...

This year nothing.  Been too busy to even sow seeds...ugh!!

Where's the best value to buy tomato, cucumber, chilli plants?

Any recommendations?

TIA

Be careful what you choose to put outside, forecasts are for cooler temps to return after the weekend. Not very low, but could still be a shock for less hardy plants.

@just saying.

Grow Your Own / Re: First spear of spring
« Last post by hasbeans on Today at 08:23 »
10 spears now, nice thickness too.  I planted 2 year old crowns early spring last year and all the ferns were pencil thick at best, some look 3 times the thickness this year.  Intending to harvest for about a month this year, hopefully get away with it as the crowns a a year older.
All the spuds are up now, peas,beets and carrots appearing too.  Not doing so well with the tender stuff indoors, had a few toms and cukes die.  Can't win em all...
