Hi,
I hope to plant out my sweet peppers, chillis and cucumbers this week in the tunnel. Just wondering what planting mixes to use? They are going into a raised bed that was well manured last autumn. I have more rotted manure, multipurpose compost, box of sulphate of potash and fish blood and bone. Just not sure what or how much of each to use in the holes??
Thanks for any advise

hiya DM,

I would just apply some F&B and some compost to the soil and then plant them up.

I wouldnt worry about exact amounts, just be sure to keep them feed every couple of weeks. (This is going by what I done with my own sweet peppers last year and they were fine! I havent a clue really though!).

Cheers! Probably obsessing after the long wait to get them finally planted out Smile
