I’ve experimented and found seeds in used jiffy pellets germinate maybe 0-10% right next to the same seed in new jiffy pellets which germinate at 100%. I’m going to try heating them now and run that experiment. I usually end up throw

Do tuberous begonias "bud back?"

Posted: 15 Days 23 Hours ago by: Gary Woods

I have a tuberous begonia overwintered in a hanging planter; grown from seed last spring. It shared the planter with a bunch of Impatiens. The single thick stem had foliage on the end, so I cut the stem below the foliage to root...I've ha

I don't think so . If I run the pump at 7.5 GPM for an hour it doesn't matter if that 450 gallons goes directly to the plants or if it makes a trip through a holding tank . My first task in either case will be to regulate flow so I'

It's a 1 hp pump, I figure I can fill a 275 gallon tank in about 30 minutes at 10 gpm so at .11 per kw/hr that's about $.08 per day . The pump running unrestricted moves around 25-30 gpm but the well won't sustain that rate for more

Maybe less electricity than you think ? ... not sure of my maths here .. : 10 minutes per day to fill the tank x 30 days = 300 min = 5 hours : 1/3 HP pump <?> 300 watts x 5 hours = 1500 watt hrs = 1.5
