UK: Is it worth even doing an outdoor grow this summer?
    #563553 - 06/10/11 01:02 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

With the predicted forecasts as mostly showers with first half to mid of August with sun.

make sure you have an extremely well draining soil

and let them drink up the rain during veg.

when do they begin to flower?

youll have to overwater when theyre mature and flowring probably, to make up for lack of body/tilth in the soil

maybe even mix into the top layers of soil,  some moisture retention amendments, when theres no more crazy rain

scenario - Ridge, couple of natural springs, with small bogs next to them, dwindling off to 50/50 mix chalky/soul which is pretty dry. Anybody who knows the Southern England chanell cliff, like the dover white cliffs may understand.

What would be the best way to deal with this? I was thinking digging along the springs, but next to the boggy area but not in. Mix in the current soil with manure? All this is on a slop so im thinking not too much of an issue with drainage? Wouldthe roots find the bog/spring and collect nuits? Would I need to provide slow release nuits?

I have to usable areas along the cliffs, miles apart and I feel im in a rush now lol.

last year I did not start my plants until end of june/beginning of july and they didnt get put outside till beginning/middle of august and they still finished out by october..

If you cant go out and feed it you might want to put some slow release nutes in the top layer... but by all means if you can feed it with regular nutes (ie. molasses, ferts, fish/seaweed extract) Id do so.

Paradise, I assume your in the UK then? Do you mind me asking what your yield was and the amount of plants?

I think wwhat I will do is put down chicken pellets and water with a basic tea with molasses and nutes. Keep it as simple as possible seeing as how I havnt grown sometime. Although this is my first Guerrila Grow.

Im in eastern Canada. Our seasons are very similar to yours. We might even get frost and what not sooner.

I had 4 females and got almost a half pound out of it.. I think it was like 7 and a half ounces...I filled 3 paper lunch sacs

Thats alright, thats the minimum im looking for by ratio. Once my seeds arrive and germinated ill be putting 10 under a 250W MH for aslong as I can before introducing to the outdoors for 1 more month of veg to allow 2 months of flower.

I just need to get my arse back up there and check the site and prepare the soil and hope that there is a way I can keep the sheep away.

How close should I go to the natural springs do you reckon?
