Just sown some of these for a friend
Think I've still got a few seed packets from the Czech Republic, passed to us to use by friends after they started a family and struggled with conflicting youngsters demands and growing aspirations.
Sown cherry and gogosari peppers sent to me by a friend along with some fridge magnets Can you guess where from ?
What are they and why do they have a red warning triangle on them ?
Well DERR!!! It's plainly written for all to see ... ... they are from: THE KITCHEN GARDEN
I dunno, was married to a Slovak for 25 years, never learned to speak it
Stop nagging, Ziggy!!
Today at Wilko I noticed they had quite a range of seed Potatoes, ok I know that you shouldn’t plant until the end of March…..My question is, would it worth buying now and chitting them ready or would it be too early. Thanks.
@john558 I don't grow veg but I did find this info if it helps..till more qualified members can answer What to do How to chitChitting simply means encouraging the seed potatoes to sprout before planting.Start chitting from late January in warmer parts of the country or in February in cooler areas, about six weeks before you intend to plant out the potatoes.Each seed potato has a more rounded, blunt end that has a number of 'eyes'.Stand the tubers with the blunt end uppermost in trays or old egg boxes, with plenty of natural light.The potatoes are ready to be planted out when the shoots are 1.5-2.5cm (0.5-1in) long.How to plantPlant your chitted potatoes when the soil has started to warm up, usually from mid-March or early April. Start by digging a trench 7.5-13cm (3-5in) deep, although the exact depth should vary according to the variety of potato you're planting.Add a light sprinkling of fertiliser to your trench before you begin planting.Plant early potatoes about 30cm (12in) apart with 40-50cm (16-20in) between the rows, and second earlies and maincrops about 38cm (15in) apart with 75cm (30in) between the rows.Handle your chitted tubers with care, gently setting them into the trench with the shoots pointing upwards, being careful not to break the shoots. Cover the potatoes lightly with soil.As soon as the shoots appear, earth up each plant by covering it with a ridge of soil so that the shoots are just buried.You need to do this at regular intervals and by the end of the season each plant will have a small mound around it about 15cm (6in) high.
