Hey all, 

 

So females seeds offered me the chance to run some of their beans for a diary, as you can see I chose outdoor grapefruit, cheers Mr.b and @Female Seeds Team

About 4 weeks ago I put 4 seeds straight into compost, they then had 2 weeks under cob led lights and 2 weeks in the greenhouse. From the off these were  much more vigorous than the HSO beans put in at the same time and at plant out yesterday, they were about 2 inches taller! 

 

As said I planted out yesterday, the plot was pre prepped a while a go with chicken shit, calcified seaweed and gypsum added.

After planting I dusted with DE and sprinkled slug pellets... Now I just need some rain!

Hello Beezee!

Hope you are doing fine my friend.

I am so happy to see this thread up and running, thanks a lot for starting it so fast :D

Looks like you prepared a nice environment for these lovely varieties, pretty sure they will enjoy it. And... nice fences ;)


Looking forward to seeing how these ladies will behave, and fingers crossed for a good sunny season!


Thank you once more,

All the best,

Mr B.

Cheers for looking in Mr.B, I'll be going to check on these asap... They've had some excellent weather, so as long as they survived the lack of rain after plant out, they should be don't really well.

I'm quite pleased with them now, they're looking nice and healthy :D

 

I chucked some rose food down and sprinkled some slug pellets, then got on my way :)

Ha it does a bit, but credit where it's due, these are probably the most uniform plants I've grown from seed.

Another late update lol

 

I went to see these about a week ago as we were expecting rain, I think we had some, but not enough. However there was a good soaking last night :D that should've washed in the granular rose food I chucked down. 

 

All looking good here, they're the biggest plants on the plot and pretty healthy although a bit spindly. 

I took all the lowers off as per usual and knocked back the encroaching bracken and brambles... Jobs a good un ;)
