BROCCOLI 🥦 seedlings 🌱
For a successful harvest, Broccoli are not only very hungry plants but like to grow very fast and unhindered. They require:
A) uninterrupted supply of nutrients and/or additional feeding
B) frequent watering
A lack of nutrients in the soil, irregular feeding or a dry soil can all affect the final quality of the harvest
As soon as the roots are established, sprinkle some general all-round fertiliser (phosphorus, potassium, nitrogen) and assess their health progressively as they are developing occasionally applying a liquid plant tonic. You shouldn’t need to re-fertilise again if your soil is richly composted and well manured ✅
Broccoli does favour a slightly ‘sweeter’ soil and the best way to achieve this is to pre-apply lime to your soil either directly or mixed in with manures such as mushroom compost that typically contains lime. Broccoli does have a high lime requirement but they will also grow successfully with a PH of 7 and slightly below as well
As BROCCOLI likes to grows fast, it is very important that the balance of your soil is at the correct PH level to allow nutrient uptake to be quick and effective. A wrong level in PH causes nutrients to negate each other, slowing and even preventing nutrients from being processed by the roots and this will affect the quality of the plant. An example of this is over-liming your soil to the extent that the effectiveness of manganese is compromised often evidenced in serious cases of leaf mottling
On our BROCCOLI plants, we use rock fertiliser because it contains key micronutrients like molybdenum and boron. Broccoli is quite reactive to boron deficiency but again excessive amounts of boron turns toxic. Molybdenum creates strong well- formed plants

Little garden visitors xx
No pesticides, no chemicals for they exist for a reason. Welcome them. I understand people don't like them, frustrated by them or simply that there gardens may look nicer by having perfect flowers but we need our wildlife. Use alternative options let nature control nature. Our ladybirds return every year now and help keep the aphids in control.
Save the planet, save the wildlife, save the bees, save the butterflies and one day you will appreciate a less harmful way to be xx
Sunny days and caught this shadow of our wee Star so time for a shadow photo of us and an idea of how i love nature and birds etc.
Sometimes when you need uplifted add a hue or too to re-energise you🌈🌳🐦🐈🎼🎶🎵🎶🐝🍃💖

Happiness can come in many shapes and what makes me happy might not have the same effect on others. That secret smile that says I have a happy memory that is just for me and it warms that place inside me.
Sometimes a smell evokes a special memory I remember my Nan always wore the 4711 Eau de Cologne although you don’t smell it much now. If I get the opportunity to smell it those memories come flooding back. Likewise my other Nan always had an open fire and that along with boiling washing on her stove top are the memories that remind me of her and make me smile.
My first perfume was Estée Lauder Youth Dew which my dad bought for me before I went to my first job interview. Boy did that make me feel so grown up and even now I love the smell. I wouldn’t wear it now unless it was an evening do because it is so powerful but that is such a happy memory.
Colours have also been important in my life. I can remember my Mum and Dad having the richest purple velvet curtains in their bedroom along with soft purple blankets. Colours play an important part in our lives although we probably don’t think about the psychological effect of colour when choosing it. Next time you are drawn to a colour stop and see if you can figure out what has drawn you. Is there a memory link to that colour that makes you feel happy, comforted or safe? Equally we may shy away from a colour if it has a sad memory.
Have a great day friends.
