    Default Poorly looking Brasicas

    I have a number of cabbages, cauliflowers and sprouts still in the greenhouse waiting to be planted out looking a bit pale.

    My bet is they have depleted the food in the MPC, I dont have any tea's so what can I use to pep them up? Would tomrite help?

    Due to go out Sunday

    I think you are right about the nutrient depletion, I have some similar but nowhere to plant them just yet. A Nitrogen feed may help.

    Something quick & easy would be a nettle mulch.

    It may not be a quick fix but won't do any harm. Have a look at your fertilisers & see if you have one with more Nitrogen........Either way something is better than nothing.
