Hi all,

I'm a new home grower so hope you will have some patience with some questions I am sure you will have seen many times before 🙂

Out of need for something to help ease my nerves and anxiety with the recent coronavirus pandemic I decided to try and grow a plant for my own personal use. I figure it is better than using alcohol excessively. I have not really smoked for around 15 years or longer but think it could help me now as an occassional medicine to help me relax. So I decided to order some seeds online and found sensi seeds had a good selection. I purchased a few seeds of 'Early Skunk' and put one in a pot of regular soil about 7 weeks ago. I believe this strain is auto-flowering and feminized and looked one of the most suitable for the climate here in the UK.

I haven't done anything apart from water the seed every day but now I have a plant about a foot high growing out on the balcony. I can see what look like flowers starting to form at a few points along the main stem and I can start to smell that familiar aroma once I get within a metre of the plant or am downwind from it. Unfortunately I don't have any space in my small flat to really do any indoor grow with a partner and kids around so I am looking to move the plant to a secure location for the rest of its lifecycle before harvest. I haven't even figured out what to do at that stage!

So I guess the questions I need to answer at this stage are about advice about moving this to a good secure location bearing in mind I am currently in a big city in the UK. I know there are some guerilla grow guides on the site but any particular advice from fellow growers who have been through my scenario would be much appreciated!

Best regards
The Dude Again

p.s. Love the podcasts by the way! Keeps me amused and informed!

@macky- Hey mate, thanks for the quick reply. I can drive so no problem to go hunting for a good spot to re-plant. 

Any advice or pointers on what I should be looking for on the map or when I get to a potential location?

Cheers!

Something close to a stream, but not close to a path. Find a potential place and leave a fiver there mate. If it is a good space, the fiver will be there when you come back 😉

You can never be sure if a spot is good until harvest time mate I am afraid, you just have to hope for the best. Dig a hole and full it with good soil too, incase the ground you find is no good Smile Itll help keep the plant feed whilst your not there
