  1. Hi all, Long time smoker but pretty new to this growing malarkey! I’m at lat 53 and after reading about the outdoor successes of Dinafem seeds I’ve gone ahead and got myself a few to try for myself outdoors! I'm lucky enough to have some secure land with good soil (ex-farm land) not too far from me so I can keep an eye on the girls and I’m hoping this thread will help me get the most of out what I have with the collective knowledge on this site. So, what do I hope to be smoking later this year I hear you ask? Well I’ve bought: 3 x Dinafem Critical+ 2.0 3 x Sweet Killer Kush F1 FV 1 x Dinafem Auto Bubba Kush 1 x Dinafem Blue Critical Auto 1 x Dinafem Critical Jack Auto 3 x Dinafem White Widow XXL Auto 3 x Dinafem Blue Amnesia XXL Auto 1 x NYC Diesel Auto (free - seed company unknown) 1 x Fruit Punch Auto (free - seed company unknown)

  3. Hi UK420. Plans have been made for an outdoor grow this year, seeds have been germinated, or placed in a cup of water at least. I'm planning to clear a few plots nearby in some of the overgrowth, I've done a fair amount of research and I intend to find some overgrown bramble bushes, or some overgrown something at least, I have 4-4-4 feed here, and organic compost. If i'm going to dig some holes and fill it with that, will that suffice? Thanks UK420.
  4. Hey guys it's been a while since I last posted. This is my second year growing outdoors and Iv learned a lot from my previous mistakes, now I'm nearing the end of this years cycle I thought it would be a good time to hit you up and try to get some opinions and tips Strain picks - Dinamed CBD by Dinafem Critical + by Dinafem Red Purps by female seeds Killer Kush FV by sweet seeds Blue Dream by Humboldt Seeds Dinemad Cbd has proved two years running that it's not ideal in the U.K. Climate lat 51 as both years they have had stunted growth at around 3 foot regardless of my technique (which I'll document at the end of this post) So I will be concentrating my questions and pictures on my critical + plants which are not at an average of 7 foot Here's some pictures that were taken 5 days ago, note that Iv been experimenting with fim tops this year, one of which has grown to a tidy 6.5 foot and bushes out like a beast!! https://ibb.co/dkhcNU https://ibb.co/cgQLbp https://ibb.co/msMtwp https://ibb.co/gXPfbp https://ibb.co/bvCBhU https://ibb.co/bK7Np9 https://ibb.co/jAZP2U (Iv never uploaded pictures this way so not sur did it will work, if you can't see them let me know and please advise how to upload pics on here) So here are my questions - How much should I be pruning at this stage? And when should I get rid of most of the leaves? When should I stop feeding the nutrients? Currently theyr on Biocanna Flora . How much longer should I expect them to be finished by? (I'm thinking second week of October or once the hairs change colour although last year I had a lot of mould issues but then I started a little later then this years) following from the previous - I have read a lot about creating a cover for the plants so they are protected from rain.. I was thinking about making a roof for the plants soon with some thick plastic sheeting but not completely cover the sides so it doesn't create too much humidity and only water the roots until they are done, what do you guys think about that? Any experience ? The critical + plants and Cbd are together on a private garden so allows for a lot more time spent to help them out, the other strains are guerila style and so I will just leave them to the weather but in my garden this year I want to do eveything possible to give them the best chance of success so any thoughts on this would be much appreciated. My technique - Planted seeds on the 15th March using the wet towel method and once sprouted I put them in biocanna bioterra soil and placed them into in a makeshift closet space with diamond reflective sheeting and several CFL lights - https://ibb.co/kLonp9 10-14 days later I loved them into bugger pots to let them grow stronger roots - https://ibb.co/cfbkbp (At some point here between 5-9 nodes I tried a few fim tops) Then on the 9th April I moved them outside to the garden - https://ibb.co/eFigGp I used some manure to put a layer around the top of the holes and filled the holes with the last of my bioterra soil. Once a week approximately I used Biocanna Vega and then Flora which they are currently still getting. Thats about it, Iv been supporting the plants with bamboo sticks as they have grown, the tim top bushes have needed it and I'm guessing will need a lot more support in the coming weeks. Thanks for reading! I look forward to hearing your feedback and advice and also hope your Own grows are going well, it's been an incredible summer so I'm guessing a lot of you have some nice crops going!! Feel free to share your threads int the comments so I can take a peak at your grows Big love and happy harvests. WC
  5. Does anyone have any experience with CBD hemp strains and which ones work well in the southern part of the UK? I would like to set up a plot for my dad in a garden but he's not into the THC or smoking so I want to make some oils for him to help his varied muscle and body issues . Im looking for a strain with very little or no Thc hence thinking a hemp variety would be the one . Any info would be appreciated
  6. Hi All Can anyone tell me how frost affects out door plants, This is the first time Ive planted outside and have frisian duck and hollands hope both meant to be mould resistant. I have had a little mould but less than in the greenhouse. The ducks are almost done another week max but the hope which are on a GG will be ready early nov. Im on lat 51 so I think the ducks will be done b4 any frost.
  7. Well people, rather than block our diary up with this shit, thought i would just start a new topic. I have posted below some of the oddities that happen during our night time visits, just wanted to know if this happens to everyone, one explanation, yes would be dust particles, but then do dust particles fall symetrically, i'm not so sure. Just wondered if you have any weird pics from your grow to show
