Garden Advice: Annuals Weeds, Watering, 5 Products, Tree Versus Ivy and Planters

You asked the questions. These are the answers. 😉 Different I’ll grant you that. But, maybe, a little for everyone. Thoughts and comments ? See below.

1. My onion pots, chickweed and feeding my Hens

I grow a fair amount of my vegetables in pots. Not all, mainly those that are legume or allium. That doesn’t however stop any weed from wanting to grow there or anywhere else. What I will say is I generally find the tough perennial weeds are smart enough to make life easy for themselves and grow where they will get very less competition ie. in tough soil. In this case the fine sieved compost grew nothing but shallow rooting chickweed. Food for thought and food for my hens.

2. How much should you water your plant ?

Anthony McGuinness asked how much water he should be giving his plant per week. I answered Anthony in audio.
