Greta’s Guidelines to Success
Please keep all plants outside in their pots for 4-7 days to harden and develop a good root system especially the vegetable trays. The only exception is basil which needs to be grown inside on a sunny window, greenhouse or tunnel. Always check underneath pots and trays for a sign of roots which means it is ready to plant! A little general granular fertiliser such as Growmore mixed with compost and put in the planting hole will give the plants a great start.
Many of the small herb pots may be potted into large pots and grown on for planting out later. Many varieties will be ideal for container growing.Water plants carefully. It is a good idea to let thymes, rosemary and sage dry out between watering as they will not tolerate constant wet conditions. My book ‘Greta’s Herbs’ has all the information you will require and features over 100 varieties, all of which I have grown at some stage.
Watch out for slugs! They love young leaves especially lettuce and will gobble them up in one night! There are many methods to try to prevent disaster, but vigilance is vital. Set up beer traps, sprinkle crushed eggshells, nemaslug (biological control) or use organic slug pellets. Although ordinary slug pellets are hugely effective please be aware that as they poison the slugs, they will also poison the birds! If you use them apply sparingly – you can sprinkle a few into a jam jar lid so they do not contaminate the soil and empty the dead slugs every morning into the bin before the birds eat them
The tiny baby slugs are the worst – they get wedged between leaves and underneath pots and trays where you may not spot them and then wonder why so many of your plants are disappearing. I continually pick these slimy creatures off and feed them to the hens!
Good luck with your edibles this season!
