Catherine from Ireland here, having seen and read Markus Cox's blog about how to beat the hosepipe ban and in a reply comment to a member here and informing us of a product that can reduce watering your plants and garden. Markus kindly offered members here a free sample of Alfieco GardenPlus. I applied for a sample and Markus sent it pronto , thanks Markus :)
At this early stage I am not yet promoting this product, I am trialing it on some plants, seedlings and new seeds.
GardenPlus cuts down watering by 50%...Improves plant health....Improves taste and quality of fruit and veggies...Helps seeds germinate faster..!
Here is a picture of my main choices so far....Left side will be watered with GardenPlus and Right side with just ordinary water.
At back....2 apple pip seedlings, next is 2 Aubergines....on front left is 6 Dwarf French Bean seeds, on front right is2 Marigolds, and outside right 6 Cauliflower seeds.
Also I have GardenPlused some plants in my tunnel.....
2 rows of Carrots....above...and below I am doing half and half of a row of Iceberg lettuce
I have also picked 3 potted Tomato plants in the tunnel to use in the trial, just to check differences...
The middle one seems to be a bit dull last few days, so will see how it does..!
I am excited about this trial and am delighted to be trying out Markus's product, I feel useful :)
This will be an ongoing blog to keep you all up to date on the progress of the plants.
Cheers for now, chat soon :)
