As nasturtium are members of the brassica family, do the also suffer from clubroot, or, more important can they transfer clubroot from one part of the garden to another?

  Making a raised bed
Posted by: Spec - 28-10-2020, 07:13 PM - Replies (3)

I started filling a new raised bed when I thought I should have taken photos of the work, unfortunately I hadn't so I will have to describe what I have been doing. First I needed to clear the area where the bed was going, it took six large rubble bags to hold the soil and to make things more difficult, there were a lot of tree roots through the soil, once cleared I then constructed the frame, the size being 9ft. by 5ft. and using paving slabs for 1 side and the 2 ends the other side being made with galvanized tin sheeting, I sealed the joints and filled the gaps at the sheeting with cement . I then started filling the bed first by adding a layer of soil about 9 in. deep, I then covered the soil with material from my compost bins a lot of it still fresh, this layer is about 5 inches deep, I then covered that with a layer of soil over which I put a layer of cardboard/newspaper which I then soaked,followed by more soil, filling the bed up to the top, I have now left it to settle for a time and once settled I will cover the bed with a blanket of seaweed (after all what's a bed without a blanket) and finally I will cover that with another layer of cardboard and leave it over the winter to settle.

The packets suggest different dates but from my experience some of you swerve suggested datesSmile

  Eating Unsown Seeds
Posted by: PyreneesPlot - 28-10-2020, 10:10 AM - Replies (2)

I have a big batch of fenugreek seeds that were a failure in the garden; as they are good for both sowing and sprouting, I'm guessing they're good just to eat too! 
The packet does not say that they have been treated with anything.
I'm just posting this in case I disappear ...  Sick
