So if i read that correctly they wintered over at some stage and in the end you got the plants to bud up nicely.
I live in new zealand top of the south island.
Gets most sunshine hours in the country usually.
Been an exceptional summer for wind this year and only had 6 mls rain since 20th december.
I got onto this seed bank a bit late to plant by the time the seeds arrived.
I planted 4 seeds 3 died 2 gorillas 2 Bergman gold.
It was the gorilla that survived so it will be interesting to see how that fairs starting so late into the grow season.
I used to have compost tea brewing in barrels stirring them clock wise then anti clockwise.
There still sitting there after many years. To scared to use it now due to not knowing how potent it is.
They got left behind when we bought this land that was a pine forrest til i learned how to be a lumberjack now 5 years on my times spent planting native watering native trees.
Everything else that goes with living off the grid in a house truck.
Epsom salts interesting what stage do you add that to your plants.
