hi all
Quick Question
I know tihs is late in the season, but Ive got some seeds mixed salad leaves collection (coriander, corn salad, mizuna, spinach medinia, rocket & mustanrd red giant ) in a combo pack from wilkos

Can I plant in pots? ONly my soil is rubbish ( took most of the hardcore out) but its dusty and without nutrients, pretty much everything is dying depsite fertilising & turning in some compost
:beer: Well aint funny how its the little things in life that mean the most? Not where you live, the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes.
Theres no dollar sign on piece of mind
This Ive come to know...
So if you agree have a drink with me, raise your glasses for a toast :beer:

    I recently planted some in one of those black plastic tub things that you buy baby potatoes in and they are growing like crazy - as long as you have about 1.5 - 2 inches of soil underneath they will probaby be fine!

    I have mixed salad leaves and rocket growing in both pots and also in a grow bag. If you sow a few seeds at 2 week intervals in no time you will have salad leaves and be able to cut and come again IYKWIM.

    I have been picking mine for a couple of weeks - have them in an unheated greenhouse and what a saving from the bags you buy in the supermarkets. I keep sowing them for continutiy - pick some and leave the rest - they will regrow
    Saving in my terramundi pot £2, £1 and 50p just for me! :j
