I’ve done 1/2 crowns and 1/2 seeds so I can have different varieties that are harder to find crowns for and also save money. I’ve got the usual Mary Washington, purple, connors colossal and argenteuil. I was supprises how fast the seeds established and the size of the crowns even after one...
It’s still daunting for the .8m beds and I’m under 40! The shorter beds not so much as they are easy to fill. I’d have more but the chickens destroy them without fencing. I think the 6in1 beds are bloody good. It’s be interesting @Dalron how you find the birdies are next to the others.
I’ve still got a few thin green ferns coming up. Seems to be from the colossal type seeds I planted this year rather than the crowns. I’m sure they will die off now I’ve cleared the insulating dead ferns.
Things are a bit strange this year. I’ve got chilli seedlings coming up and plants still...
I’ve not tried vidaxl but I have tried other cheaper beds. I’ve never bought anything other than birdies since trying them. You won’t be disappointed by birdies if you go that way. Worth the money I’d say. Plus you can get the smaller beds in Bunnings now one by one to reduce the big spend
Just seen the ad and think it’s great!
great to hear more about your background and a different view from your own channels. Some very good points made and very brave. Definitely struck a chord with me.
If people haven’t seen it yet I’d give it a go. I use hoselink stuff already and it’s good...
Ah sorry WA means Western Australia to me. I knew you weren’t there so I assumed Canada. Well you are doing pretty well despite the ridiculous rules. Small minds with a little power are very dangerous indeed
Sounds like the residents need a garden more than most. Especially during a pandemic lockdown. We have family in north Vancouver, bad image for a city usually so praised for resident happiness. Keep into the representative, motivate them to take it further.
Looks really great. I think the answer is you can grow almost anything in planters if you have to. Sure it’s better to grow in ground but if your building managers are that annoying then planters will do the job, deeper the better. Who wants uniformity anyway?!?!
Yes they are over wintering well with their own mulch plus sugarcane but I wondered if I could use this bed over winter at all. I have about the same size bed, it’s just a shame to not use it in the winter months.
Top image looks like a nutrient deficiency. Bottom a fungus or disease. Mg or Fe deficiency? Is watering correct?
Either way I’d shade them from the late sun if you think the sun is too strong. Sorry I don’t know your zone. Don’t water the leaves and make sure the soil is tip top.
where can I easily buy food grade IBC totes in se Qld with delivery. I don’t trust the scavenger route and can’t transport myself anyway. Where can I buy them that delivers? Where did rob bob get his?
