    pigeon shooting

    pm,s replied to i will possibly be looking at doing the same over nxt weekend so those interested in that, i will let you know ,i cannot see a problem with two shoots as the birds are ample, however we'l see how monday goes
  5. hello guys i know its been a while since posting on the forum, but now back to full strength. As some of you will be aware i try my best to get a few like minded folk a days pigeon shooting on one of my permissions, well that time has arose again where on particular farm (Rape) is getting absolutely hammered and has been for a week or so now, So i am asking if any of you local guys fancy a day ? it will be next monday 13th ,we will want 4 people who preferably have their own equipment, however we may be able to provide a hide net. The days shooting is free However My shooting partner has hit hard times so a gesture i would like to ask anyone interested in the days shooting to offer a box of cartridges which i think is fair for a days shooting. I am not one of those that can or will guarantee or prommise a massive bag but can assure you that the pigeons are there. anyone interested drop me a pm for further details ATB Rob

    to be perfectly honest they taste no different to any other leek you would buy from a supermarket,or pot leek, like the pennine or cairngorm etc,TBH i think blanch leeks as we call them taste stronger

    sorry if i came across the wrong way there mate that is the price we sell them at i think its realy because every leek grower buys around 2 dozen which we then discount, as an instance we have had a guy collect 50 today and we charged him £80 but he did buy some of our surplus compost aswell so its swings and roundabouts realy

    tbh they are not a thing you can plant and forget about, to get them up to show standard you need bulk and quality, hence the size in cu you would need a green house from this stage heated, and well lit we use gas tilley lamps at night as we dont have electricity for grow lights, they are sprayed on a weekly basis to avoid various flies,mites,aphids etc, leeks grow as tubers therefore like water but can dampen off in the early stages, we put them out into the tunnell in mid april to get them climatised and hardened of then aroun the 1st may planted into the prepared trenches in the tunnels left for a few weeks with only a small amount of watering and other stuff ( sorry i cannot say haha ) then from around 4 weeks with chempak no2 which is high in nitrogen then the last 8-12 weeks chempak no8 which is more ballanced to avoid them bursting below the button, we do use other feeds sprayers etc which i would not publish on an open forum or it may cause allotment wars hahaha. Give it a go tim its a realy good hobby ,,well at least for me,

    mmmmmmmmmm 2x12 =24,, soil marks are those marks (soil) which has settled in the flags (leaves) during watering , 302 etc is cubic inch per pair i think this is best left to leek growers who know the ins and outs !! would you like to buy a 25ltr bag of john innes no2 sir ? also chempak potting base ? also horticultural vermiculite ? also horticultural sharp sand along with chempak feed no 8 ? because we also have plenty of that aswell

    yes thats £2 each which is 24 per dozen we would be out of pocket doing any less for a dozen, the head alone was lets say a large amount of money compost,vermiculite,pots, potting base etc etc we might just claw our money back, my dad has been an exhibition grower for years so i can only give the price he says.they will be cheaper buying over a dozen the leeks which the heads came off are obviously finished now, but an example of those, are all on the Top Table with the first set 302 cu 2nd 246cu 3rd which were my own 297 cu but were knocked back for soil markshttp://imgur.com/a/6O3D3
