This week we have been preparing the fields for sowing. With the soil we have and the nitrogen requirements of the hemp being quite high we need to get it right. This is translating into ploughing, paddle rolling & powerharrowing twice over to make sure we get a good seed bed.
The test grids for the Silic Boost from Master Garden Nutrients (www.mastergardennutrients.co.uk) have been dug in and prepared, with each being given slightly different growing conditions in order to maximise the research output from this season.
Over the next few days we will begin the process of sowing, more to follow.
