Adding lime to the soil and feeding brassica s
« on: July 06, 2013, 21:49 »
Sprouts are getting ready to go in first lot eaten by birds.  The brassica s in the ground are a bit hit and miss.  Before I plant them would it be worth adding a bit of lime.   How long after adding lime can you plant out .  To feed brassica s is the best option  chicken pellets.    ::)

A little lime is often added to the planting hole  ;)
