    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..........

    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?
