so heres an update nearly 3 months later! it has been interesting seeing what happened to all these plants over the summer. the best one and another one got stolen, a couple turned into males during october, and some just failed to produce bud in time due to getting murdered by slugs. one of the plants got us about 2 grams of nice bud after we removed all the leaves and dried it, here it is about a week before we took it out (i think)



then heres an early skunk that was taken out of the ground and put in a grow room, didn't like the switch very much so after a few days it got chopped, there is a little bud on it, but mainly leaf. the reason for it being so small is that it got put out late and then fed the surrounding slugs for a month or so. this is a pretty old photo, it had been budding for a while when we moved it.



and here is the final one still going, an early skunk that got absolutely destroyed by slugs (like nearly all the plants) but has fought back. the head got eaten off so a new branch took over, it is another case of a plant that looks to have so much potential but all the areas of budding are nearly all leaf with little bud. it will probably get another week before the weather becomes too much to take. i am amazed at how well this strain does in the uk, considering the conditions and how the slugs got hold of it, and it still looks like this coming towards november.



all in all it has been good fun, i look forward to next summer. if any people growing out doors want some advice mine is BEWARE OF THE SLUGS! do a proper job of putting wire mesh around your plants and make it impossible for them to get to them.

cheers doktadelic, it was to be expected so is not too disappointing, they were not in the most secretive spots now that i look back at where they were planted. the others are now doing well, they seem to struggle for the first couple of weeks and then do ok, the biggest problem is slugs and other insects which seem to love living around the plants. here is a newer pic of one of the plants that was all white and looked like it was about to die, it now seems to have bark!

little update on this. 2 of the plants (including the big one) are now gone. a couple of weeks ago the little one was taken, and then today it seems the big one has also gone. i guess someone found them and decided they wanted them for themselves... not to worry, lesson learned, find better hiding spots. lol the other 4 are doing well thankfully

..and all that bare bare soil! Thats going to dry out very quickly in any drought weather. Chop down with a sickle some nearby vegetation, bracken, grass etc and mulch over the bare soil and around...ideally do this at planting or even before (having prepared a planting bed). You might need slug and rabbit protection.

For example in my garden one half of it is free draining and the other is not as much, plants on the free draining side need to be watered a bit more than the other side, the less free draining side holds more water in the ground.

Planted directly in the ground, the roots can search out water and food quite well on there own. They wil need feeding as they get bigger and use what's available in the soil around them.


Thanks!!! no more fertiliser for them for now then and we'll see if it helps

sicklehand, no chalk, i don't know why it looks like that in the pics.

and alecky, the soil is fully miracle-grow for the first 2 plants, then the second 2 its miracle-grow with mixed in with the original soil from the area. they have had some nutes, canna terra vega at about half the recommended dose, but thats exactly what i've done with my indoor plants and they are doing very well. we have watered them about once every 3 days, so that shouldn't be a problem, but maybe in outdoor the watering schedule is quite different to indoor, it hasn't rained at all though in the past week so that won't have affected anything.

What soil did you add to the holes? Any nutes added? To me it looks like either Nute burn from too rich soil or they had a period of drought. The bigger plant will be able to deal with these things simpily cause it's bigger and older, the younger plants would need a bit more care. It could also be a lot of other things, like overwatering, post some more details re soil type, how often you water, any feed yet?
