    You've probably got enough food in there but some organic matter such as leaf mould or compost is always good.

      Apparently a leak round your leeks is supposed to help..........

        Magic potion

        I prepare the ground with dug in compost , then in early stages, water with a mix of comfrey tea diluted & household activating fluid. This is used on all my crops with excellent results. I have a good supply of spent grains from brewing which are either composted or spread neat

          I don't wish to appear completely stupid ( I know, that ship has already sailed) But what is "Household activating fluid"? Is it something you spray on the children to wake them up in the morning?

                              Lots of references to using Liquid Gold on the Vine.
