Hi,

I have planted cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, beetroot, celery, carrots, parsnips leeks and red onions in raised beds using a mixture of topsoil and compost.
I was wondering should I add fertiliser or not and if so what type should I get.

All are doing really well in the great weather we have been getting over the past week so I was just wondering if I could give an extra helping hand.

Thanks

In my humble opinion Moggi I would leave well enough alone particularly as all seem to be doing so well. Just keep things watered at night or in the early morning and watch out for slugs.

Thanks breezyacre. Thankfully there have been no slugs to date but I am keeping a tight eye as I know the little suckers are hungry little beggers once they get started.

Thanks again.
