Some advice for a fellow grower:
I have been growing for 16 years here in
California. I have had marginal success, I think because I used my own
seeds only. I have a small backyard however the dirt is bad for
growing. So I am going to grow in pots, 5 gallon. I will use good
quality flower soil and mulch as a base. The location is the high desert
2400 Feet. The light cycle is at 13 hours right now, will go down to
11 or so by October. The seeds I am under the belief are 90 day grow from
start to finish. So my first question is, when should I plant? Its now May
I plan to germinate with moist paper towels which have worked in the
past. The directions you offer in the Bible have been most helpful on
I plan on using the proper NPK ratio fertilizers you recommend.
I plan on testing the ph. regularly as you suggest in the Bible.
Climate hot and dry here. June through October. Good sun all
the time, but very dry. I will use drip irrigation or hand water
Are there any other things you
would recommend for my garden?
To start with I plan on planting 4 plants first time around, which leaves
me with 4 more seeds, when can I plant these?
