Re: hydroponics

Hello! I think that hydroponics is quite unusual, however, it is really successful. Plants have full access to water so they bring it while needed. Many people don't know about this method but it can really improve our garden! I have a very small home-hydroponic system and I have to say that plants...

Re: hydroponics

thank younutrient, can't wait to get going. will take a bit of setting up, but reasonably cheap to do. apparently you start seedlings the conventional way then wash all soil off and plant in 'small' cages in the running water that is treated with a nutrien. From what I have seen looks a great option.

How were your backs afterwards?

Re: What's Happenin'?

"What's Happenin'?" Away from the 'lottie plenty, but on the various places I garden (not just the 'lottie) it is mostly clearing of those crops which are over. But, garlic, shallots, onions and broad beans to go in so there is a shortage of space already. Partly because I plan to create ...

winter growing

I usually leave the greenhouse alone over winter, but am thinking of growing over winter. Thought of baby leaf spinach , perhaps courgette? Has anybody got suggestions? Greenhouse isn't heated but is south facing and is usually quite warm.
many thanks
