UK outdoor bud spots 2018 - who is growing?
I have one spot cleared and nearly camouflaged (by cut bushes & young trees) and another partially cleared and in the process of being camouflaged. Hoping to harvest 10 autos and 10 regs - Sweet Cheese Auto and marple Maroc. They are adjacent to a train line. The only likelihood for discovery lies in the smell. Having checked the prevailing wind to assess the likelihood of this I can state that it is likeliest in October, unless eddies on the hillside cause the smell to rise up against the direction of the wind up the hillside to a nearby footpath.

I will be using 10/12L buckets (£1 each from the Poundshop) with 10L compost in each and holes in the bottom, with the lower half buried in holes in the ground to retard dehydration such that they require less frequent watering. FBB (fish, blood and bone) fertiliser and rabbit-proof cages and slug-poison pellets will be used - standard practice.

I am now a fan of folding saws for spot-clearance.

Good luck! Photos can't be provided as I lack a camera.

Growing, but not outdoors. Good move with burying them in buckets. How do you disguise the area around it? I like the sound of it being near a railway, but aren't you concerned about the possibility of passers-by as it were?

Presumably you'll be all harvested by October? What is the average vegetation/flowering time in the UK? (realise that is a piece of string question depending on the strain but ykwim)

>>2758 One has to make the clearings away from footpaths and paying attention to the prevailing wind so the smell wouldn't carry;
to disguise the spot you have to cut spiky bushes, hawthorne and brambles, and weave living ones through to create an opaque mesh of vegetation that appears like a natural barrier. Ideally do this in winter, then as the living parts of the mesh screen grow, it looks like a natural barrier covered in leaves. Unless the potential discoverer knew the area well they would not give it a second glance.

An important part of making camo screens is not to make dense, thin walls but rather thicker, less dense "walls" maybe a metre or two thick, or it looks wrong from the outside.
For non-autoflowers, I'd hope to plant out 5/6 inch seedlings on the 1st of May and harvest by the 1st of october.

OP Here. cannabis seedlings substituted for edibles now; two spots complete. I am growing a lot of morning glory, they are currently 1 inch high seedlings. I am growing 5/6 runner bean plants, 5 potatoes, 5/6 onions seeded, some herbs, and a lot of "climbing beans" from wilkinsons.
I am keeping myself entertained while unemployed. I am now tempted to get a camera and post a picture of my spots. There are three in total. I wonder how much food I can grow - maybe two months worth of potato carrot and climbing bean. I could eat for free for two months!

You're growing potatoes outdoors? What a weirdo.
All the cool kids are growing their root vegetables under growlights now.
