Give me a break weather!

Blog Type:Vegetables, Flowers

I had big plans to plant out some flowers and sow some carrots, beetroot and radishes and mulch some flower beds, but once again the weather didn't allow me to...

In the last week and a half, we've had snow, rain yesterday that parts of the lawn and paddocks were flooded, and today wind. So windy that I didn't really want to be in the tunnel house, and had to move all the seedlings off the shelving.

The sun is out though, and it's warm. So I have been busy weeding, didn't take long to whizz around all the gardens, as for once I'm reasonably well caught up. 

While weeding, I have been soaking/butt chugging my seedlings in seaweed tonic, I try and do this every week to two weeks. My vegetable plants in the gardens also get a feed of it after watering, using a watering can.

I can honestly say my plants thrive using it, it's like a little vitamin kick for them, while making them stronger and therefore more resilient to pests. It's also a great wee product to soak plants in when transplanting, to help with transplant shock.
