    Default Quadgrow Q

    I am into 2nd season of using Quadgrow for Tomato & cucumber crops ..... and when you see how much water they take up naturally in this weather, you realise how much you were getting it wrong.

    For those that also use Quadgrow - do you continue to use the 2-part pack from Greenhouse sensations - or do you use some other concoction.

    Just mixed my last 2 packs .... so time to ask the Q

    I have two quadgrows in tandem.

    I just use tomato fertilizer per the instructions. Rely on MPC's fertilizer for first six weeks.

    OK ... thnx.
    I potted them up in MPC .. and when big enough they were potted in the Quadgrow in Canna Professional compost.
    I didn't feed until first flowers arrived.

    The Tomato feed you use what is it ? ...... and I have cucumbers in Quadgrow as well .... so needs to be a feed that suits both.

    I've been looking at the Quadgrow too. It looks good if you want want to go away for a few days. Does it work well, and does it last the full 14 days? I see there is the option of an extension if you are away longer.

    Hello. I have 2 quad grows with the additional reservoir and the grey valves. I would recommend getting the reservoir if you are going away for more than three days. My tomato plants seem to drink it all up in the greenhouse in 3 days without being topped up. I have just added the reservoir after having to get the right valves sent out then the right connectors sent out but i have all ready seen enough to give me confidence that i will not need to top up for a few days yet maybe even 5 or 6 days. Not sure about 14 though in this heat! Great products. I just keep topping the reservoir up with the two part feed they send out. The refill packs are a great idea (having to reuse the original containers).

    I just use the Tesco own brand or whatever is available. Only caveat is read instructions closely as each brand seems to have it's own dilution and application rates. All brands so far say ok for cucurbits.
