Yes, the same gel as used in hanging baskets. Apart from my hair falling out a bit and wrinkles appearing in my skin, no ill effects so far :)

 ok John gel it is then  I also found looking through my garden diary some advise I was been given by a gardener the grows his brassicas for veg shows and its as follows

1 obviously after cultivation of the ground make a hole with a dibber
2 get some baby pampers break them up into pieces and soak them well in water and liquid fertilizer mix
3 put the wet piece of pamper down the hole and plant the in this case a cauliflower plant and cover

I've never tried this method myself but the chap who told me this seems to win quite a few prizes
with his brassicas anyway I'm just passing this info on to all who would ike to give it a go
