Re: Chase Organics

Hi ya, I got the same email and I wonder if they will keep the names of the other companies going. I am on the look out fot seed spuds but isn't it a bit early yet for them to be in the shops? Maybe not as I saw them putting out easter eggs last week end in one of local shops. If I do buy seed spuds...

Re: Report on my new Propane burner.

Hi Ya, I had a big problem with some weeds that came from who knows where last season. I have a paraffin burner that I bought a few years ago but have not been using. I am considering reusing it as I am loath to use weed killers. I believe you should only run over weeds with the flame lightly to dis...

Re: Leaking water butt

Hi Ya, If you do decide to replace your water butt go to your local council web site as they may have some offers on good quality ones. I have looked on our local site and they have good ones buy one get one half price.

Re: Something from nothing!

Hi Colin, thanks for the information. I will be having a go myself and looking at the web site. It seems to be a bit hit and miss but that will make it all the more interesting. Good luck with your exploits.

Re: Sweet Potatoes

Hi Ya, thanks for the input it seems no one has managed to grow a decent crop of them no matter how much pampering they are given, Mind made up will not bother again until I get more favourable reports. I wonder why they sell so well as every seed company sells them and are even sold out. Thanks all

Sweet Potatoes

Hi Ya, I saw a little snippet in the KG magazine where Joyce Russell said about growing sweet potatoes in a black bucket. I could see it was a two gallon one and having tried to grow this crop with no real success both in the greenhouse border, on the lottie and in potato bags it interested me to se...

On some topics there is a flashing avatar and it catches me every now and then so I wondered if I could dull it down a bit by...

E MAILS

I am a subscriber to KG but I think I will pack it in as I keep getting emails from subs club I don't want. The links they send to unsubscribe do not work. I find this annoying. Any one managed to stop them?

Re: Slugs eggs?

Hi Ya, Apparently the last few months since last year have been an excellent time for slugs as the mild weather with the rain and very few frost, compared to recent winters, have made it paradise for slugs and snails alike. They have been living as normal and not stopping. They experts are telling u...
