Re: Mid Summer Bits and Bobs.

Re: general feed

Formulex dosing rates and NPK.

Recommended dosage for soil: 5ml/litre.

Recommended dosage for hydroponics: 10ml/litre.

Recommended dosage for foliar spray: 5ml/litre.

NPK: 2.4 – 0.9 – 3.4

So,no is my guess.Growmore would be my choice for a general feed.

Dry them off after trying to sort out what they are put them into a labelled paper bag store them and when you feel it is right plant out.
I had the same problem when moved to my present home made guesses at whatwere tulips,daffs,snowdrops etc.Some surprises when they appeared after replanting.

Re: Early Summer Bits and Bobs.

Morning Retropants and Primrose, I wouldn't worry too much about going on a water meter.it might save you money. We resisted until it was made compulsory in my area and have found that we save £150-£200 a year on the old water rates system.We are a household of three adults so three showers a day,di...
