Bit of a random blog post but there is a lot of planting to do at the allotment and I need to make sure I don’t put the cabbages too close together. So, just checked out a couple of websites and apparently cabbages like an alkaline soil, so i’m going to add some potash to the soil first and dig this in.
The ash from our wood burner contains potassium carbonate (potash) and sodium carbonate (soda ash), both of which are very similar. We have already added the manure over the winter and it’s nearly ready.
I’m going to put them in 20-30 cms apart and i’ll see what happens…
