Ive seen the Light

After speaking to Dave Metcalf on the phone, as I forgot to ask how much light the Leeks needed. I was informed that they only require 12 hours .So as they are in the same place as the Onions I asked him if it was OK to cut down on the light the Onions are receiving he said it was, so everything is now receiving 12 hours of artificial light and ticking along nicely

  6. Its fantastic Blog as I found useful information here.The main benefits of LED Grow Lights are that it consumes very little power which helps keep the electric bill down in cost. By putting LED lights in indoor garden.

  8. hi geffo I have an order form but unsure what to order as I am not a flower grower so i will probably get a selection the one with Pennine in the name looks appealing

  9. paul i have ordered 10 plants of different types. i have checked all the ones adam has on his order form and i must say they are of good quality. the ones i have ordered are as follows.
    1 billy bell. x-1
    2 sarah louis. x-2
    3 max riley. x-2
    4 pink john wingfield x2
    5 pennine club x-2
    6 southway sheeba x-1

    all those mentioned cost £15+£5 postage.

    i think this is a good buy, but the choice is yours. please remember that there are different types such as incurves, sprays cacti, and intermediate. hope this helps.
