Yesterday I made a slight error of judgement. I’d run out of tomorite, but having made some nettle fertiliser 6 weeks ago I decided to risk using that in it’s place. No problem – I thought.
I dosed the toms and cu’s in the greenhouse, then without thinking I dosed all those in the conservatory which is attached to the kitchen.
Now, every time I go out of the kitchen door to get to the back garden the most awful smell comes in the bungalow and immediately goes straight through to the front and we have to hold our breath or go out for a while.
Hopefully it won’t last much longer.

Oh no :( hope you manage to get rid of the smell, get a plug in out there if you have one or a scented candle, also hope it has the desired effect on the toms!!! X

lol ... sorry but that made me laugh :D
But it must have been quite unpleasant for you. I hope it's eased off by now.
And I hope your toms and cues enjoyed it :o)

Thanks for the comments, fortunately today the smell has almost gone, but I won't make that mistake again.
Happily all my veg seem undamaged.
