Ordered 20kilos of Cavemans Bat Guano three weeks ago, sent an email to them requesting a delivery date, no reply, so I sent another and another; I then called the Mobile number on the paypal customer service email; not connected, so I called the number on the website, again; not connected.

Has anyone had any dealings with Cavemans recently?

Sorry to hear that mate, same thing happened to me when i ordered last year

I've been e-mailing him but haven't heard back from him since Christmas,

Not sure what to do as paypal hasn't even replayed to my e-mails, and his phone numbers are disconnected :wallbash:

I'm just hoping by some chance he does deliver otherwise thats £60 I'll never see again

yep, much of the same last year with cavemans.. i think most people on here did get there guano in the end, but if i recall it wasnt in time to be any use theat year

i thought caveman had passed on the business to someone else which would explain why the numbers have been disconnected..

i hope you get your shit lads :guitar:

Agreed, if you keep pestering paypal they will give you the money back, phone them rather than email them as they tend to reply very slowly when it comes to you wanting money from them

:yinyang::bong: thinking about prepping a couple of sites for 2012 cos the overgrowth now will give me perfect cover to prepare the plots properly :wassnnme: was wondering if any1 has an idea of what ferts i can use that are REALLY GOOD, that take a long time to rot down. obviously horse poo takes less time too rot down than chicken poo. but im not just talking shit here :skin_up: im talking plants, flowers, seaweed, fruits, dead fish, bird, etc.. anything that is good for ganja.

i wanna dig my holes and drop in as much organic material as possible as i can before backfilling with compost.

Hello, When i dig my plot over should i add a fertilizer with with a high content of N and a lower content of P and K?

Then when it comes to flowering add a fertilizer with a high content of P and K,by sprinkling it on top of the soil?

Thanks

Hey quick question. I have a little patch by a hedge . Good top soil, lots of worms and green grass and weeds.

I have added a rucksack full of westland multi and a hand full of sand and BB&F.

Is this good enough? Do I have to go out and spend more money to add to what seams to be rich soil?

that seems ok mate the only reason im making my own compost is cos were my plot was it was really rocky but i dont see why youd have to change whats already sound really good! you may have to add some sort of bat mix or some nutes for flowering?

im no expert but hope it helps :guitar:

Tomato food has a high potash content which should helps to promote the growth of Flowers. I might just give them a dose or 2 when that time comes.

I have loads of tomato feed. Need to use it up. And free
