Grow Your Own / Blueberries
« Last post by pepsi100 on September 21, 2021, 19:31 »
I have just got hold of three blueberry plants
I want to goive them the best start in life for their first year
So they will be inside in pots over the winter
I have potted them in John Innes no3 ferilizer
I have heard that I can add coffee grounds to the soil to  make it more acid
Now I dont know how true this is, but I have been adding it to my blueberries outside, okay they are only 2 years old, but seem to be doing okay
They get watered by the hose when the wife waters the grass and plants (I am trying to get her to use rainwater on the new blueberries in doors)
Well any advice for helping my new blueberry plants make it through their first year would be appreciated

can you put pics up  of your run set up, or describe it well.
put a chair in the run and sit with them, scatter some mixed corn, if you have it, and sit and watch what they do.
what breed did you get and how old.
try to get some grit and oyster shell, pets shops sell it, I always used chick size. I had mine in a flowerpot with a tent hook through the bottom, when converted to concrete I had little hanging pots.

Grow Your Own / ripening melons, dead vines!

Hi All. My 'Emir' melons aren't ripe yet and the vines are yellow and withering.
Does the melon skin photosynthesise?
Will these ripen off the vine?
Does the bag and banana trick work? Will they sweeten?

I hate them and found a big one when I was running my bath the other night. Do they come up the plug hole?
