Hi Guys,

I've harvested 2 lots of 500 grms from my experimental wicking bed that's been watered with FT water. See pic.
I plan on building a set of 3-4 wicking beds out of vertically split IBC's and water them off a float system from the FT.
I've since trimmed the broccoli leaves back so the SB is not so shaded and more energy goes into producing the now tennis ball size heads.

Pete.

i wish i have, but no.... it's just a basic backyard IBC with single pump, no fancy SLO. RFF. composting worms etc.

oh but if squashing aphids with your fingers, overfeeding my trouts, flooding my GB to get rid of Slugs and black flies and other nasties counts as special growing tips then, that is all i do..

Okay, I'm adding that to my notebook of AP secrets... :think:

Thanks! :D
