After a bit of prompting from Fruity, I am going to try an outdoors guerilla grow.
I have some seeds cracking as we speak, 2 have cracked and are in SOIL!!! Straying from my beloved hydro, now theres a turnup!
Why am I mentioning it in this thread, well I am in Scotland.
A good friend grows outdoors (he lives on a farm) every year and has decent results including an 8ft 2lb giant last year. I am not sure of the variety though, sat dominant and the smoke gave me the worst munchies I have ever had is all I can remember.
So yes, it is possible in Scotland, just find a sheltered spot without that north Atlantic/Arctic/Scandinavian wind chill. Thats the advice my friend gave me.
