So on the 1st of June last minute I decided to last minute a quick guerilla grow. First attempt, just see how it goes- nothing fancy, nothing expensive. I found a half decent little spot so we shall see.
So i had done a little research before hand on which strains would work well here in the uk and what wasnt going to cost me an arm and a leg, as i said it was a last minute impulse decision, around three months i was hoping to harvest before the end of august and see how it goes.
So i bought myself 25 bnc critical xxl autos. I alsogot a couple other seeds which i will be experimenting under normal e27 screw fitting household led light bulbs. I will go more into what i have used etc in a later post.
So I germinated all my seeds. Ended up with 21 healthy bnc criticals 1 pinapple glue 2 blueberry and 1 very stunted quick satan which i still have running alltho it is super small still... Like super small, just kept it going for the amusement, i will get better pics for the next post but for now this is where i was at last week and all up until.

But the following morning i took the plants over to the spot and took pots and soil etc...

These photos are around 10 days ago and i havent been back to check on them since... I stillneed to put some mesh around them and space them out a little better but the position they are in allplants are getting between 10 and 12 hours direct sunlight per day... But being england the weather has been up and down but we have had some good sun and alot of showers so im hoping the rabbits have kept away and when i go see them tomorrow they will have come on fine 😬 need to do alot of work at the location too as i bet all the nettles etc have started to raise again as i havent derooted the ground... If this one goes to plan i am going to goin on the location and do a few of these 15 plant patches. This is a trail run for next year really. I have another 5 of the xxls i have put a little closer to home so i can check up on them more often, these last 5 were a little behind so i just kept them by for something to do, ive planted all 5 in the ground where i prepared the soil with 50litres of biobiz allmix which is what i potted all the others in too. As they were small ive pla ted them all close so hopefully some will thrive and overtake the others then i will remove any i choose to to focus on whichever ones look best.

Then when i took them out of the tent they was left in the boot of my car and abbandoned for a few days as ive had alot on the last few weeks and i think it forced one into flower or something but ive kept this one in my garden 😂👀

Were did you get your pots growell ? Got the exact same ones from growel. Good luck on the grow man. I've always wanted to do a full season outside but all the conditions u need to fight against puts me off.

I got them from ebay. Everything was a last minute rush, litterally from the minute i thought of this grow, within 5 days i had 25 seedlings in my house panicing thinking i need to get these things out of here 😂 so i just found the cheapest pots available on next day delivery. They seem great especialy for the price.

Im heading over to check the main site later today as ita pretty far from where I'm at so have to get a few things out the way first but i went to check on the 5 small ones i kept back as it wasabit much risking all 25 in my main site as its all abit cowboy im not certain it wont get found or even that it wont be destroyed by rabbits already.. Ill be putting slug repellant and peotection from rabbits up later if we are all good still but these are the 5 smaller ones i put in thegroundthe other day... This was just before 8 am and the sunds not quite on them, its hots them around 8.20 and they dont see shade again until 6ish sohopefully these will still give me a little something but they was the worst of the 25 seedlings.
I am using no feed on these or on my other site, these i wont even be watering but my other site i am watering weekly and phing the water to between 6.5 and 7, varying slightly everyweek to make sure they get the most from the soil i have used, i may top dress with some coffee grounds in the next few weeks for a little boost and also apparentlt it works great to keep pests n rodents away

You do not transplant autoflowers and most strains do poorly outside, yield much smaller, pests, mold, ect i run my autos indoors you put the germanated bean in the pot you intend to do your whole grow in bc transplanted autos stress out and can dwarf out, you put them in the ground why did you not leave in pots there 2 close together, well good luck and go easy on nutes.

Unfortunately it being illegal in the uk its not as straight forward as you would wish, for perfect conditions i agree from what i have researched transplanting is not recommended for autos but with my site being in the middle of the woods near some farmers fields its abit of a challenge getting to and from with equiptment so the easier more simple taking soil down taking pots down and taking seedlings down was my only option... Ive also been following a few UK guerilla growers on YouTube and have been following tips from them to try make as few mistakes as possible. But like i said its only a little trial run, all in ive spent around £100.

These are how theyre getting on at the main site.
I put 15 seedlings here.. 14 have survived and are looking healthy 👀

Im going back to my main spot on friday so im hoping things have progressed well there. The 5 that i have put in the ground i dont have high hopes for ( my last post) however in my eyes, i had no room for them so atleast i got them out rather than chucking them away so anything from them is a bonus. I have top dressed the plant in my garden with fish, blood and bone and also sulphate of potash and allthough its a small girl the smell coming from the main cola is unreal! I will be topdressing the plants at my main site when i go down there friday, i also have a load of mesh being delivered so hopefully that arrives in time, i have the plants in a fenced off run around the outside of a farmers field which was rife with stinging nettles, the area is swarmed with rabbits so since putting them out im expecting there to be nothing left every time i return 🤦‍♂️ hopefully im not to late with the guards, im thinking the fact they are in a fenced off area covered in nettles has been enough deterent for the rabbits 😬 and if im still cooking with gas and the girls are doing well im hoping my harvest comes before the farmers 😬🤣

Looks like you have another pest problem
Im fairly new to growing... And this is my first outdoor grow so pests i could do with a little educating, i had a few slug and caterpillar issues which im hoping i have vot on top of now, but im looking at the shot u have replied too and all i can see is a couple white specs on the leaves? I have npticed this on a few plants but wasnt sure what it was?! Is this what you are refering to?! The bright green thing is a pipecleaner not an insect... I use these to LST 😂 incase thats what u was refering too.

😂 yeah I’m talking about the white specs on the leaves they look like they could be aphids or some other pest hard to tell without a close up but with slugs I heard if you put beer in a container around the plants they will go to the beer and drown in it

I transplant my autos, and grow outdoors. As long as you are careful while transplanting your plants will be fine and grow great. This is an auto that's about 3/4 weeks into flower that I'm growing now. I transplanted this twice btw.

Looking well! Im hoping mine have bushed out a little when i go to see them next. What country are you at and what strain are your girls? I done a little research on what grows well in the English climate and this year i went with bnc critical xxls from seed stockers... Im definitely doing some of the same next year but i want to do a few different ones and some photos too...

Well the strain is a cross between a auto quarter pounder and a gorilla glue bag seed my bud made some seeds a couple years back I grew those last year and intentionally let the healthiest male get to flower last year and pollinate some of my healthier females and those resulting seeds are what I'm growing now

Yeh thw issue with beer, my mrs is a recovering alcoholic so tend to try and avoid alcohol in my house 😂 but also with the beer i was told by a few people that it does kill the sligs or what not but also it attracts all the slugs within a certain radius so could infact attract more slugs to the area... I have used copper tape around some of the pots ( i ran out before i could do them all) but also i have used things like seaweed and coffee grounds which ive been told are good natural fertilizers and also pest repelants... Ive been meaning to get some neem oil for a while now but but i only ever remember when im broke... flu hit me hard 🤦‍♂️
