    howdy, im having another try at growing outside this year, strains are as follows!

    Afghan kush - 5 seeds (reg
    Timewarp - 5 seeds (reg
    Purple maroc - 6 seeds (fem
    Jamaican OG - 5 seeds (reg
    Blueberry headband - 2 seeds (fem
    Frisian dew - 2 seeds (fem
    Easy sativa - 2 seeds (fem
    Kiwi skunk - 2 seeds (fem
    Outdoor C99 - 2 seeds (fem
    Amnesia lemon - 1 seed (fem

    some are going straight in the ground and some are going in some plastic flexible pots partially buried to keep the roots cool!

    the ones that are going in straight in the ground, the holes are getting some fbb, seaweed meal, lime, brewers yeast, bat guano, and some farmyard manure, and the ones in the pots are getting all the above but with compost instead of natural soil!

    paper towel method until they crack then in to small cups with compost untill there big enough to go outside, only using a 48w cfl in a small 1x2x2 box made of scrap wood, and a fan for air flow.

    plot pics to follow in the next week.

    yeah, been planning this for about 6 months doing research on the inter webs. from what i've read FD & PM are pretty reliable strains when it comes to the uk weather! best of luck to you :)

    Subed too, i would like to see how it goes, i dont know anybody who grows outdoors here. Bet with the weather we are having you will be able to plant them outside quite early. Take it easy.

    I hope they finish up for you. The lighting situation creates very late finishers in the Northern Hemisphere in my experience.

    Good luck with it.

    One of my plots is just like that, gorse can make for perfect grow spots.
    I'm subbing up the ride :eyesmoke:
