An ENVY thread....

Posted: 06/03/2014 at 22:33

Ditto Chicky  I have plant identification envy, but am learning! Thanks to the forum I managed to successfully identify something in my parents garden  

I have envy of anyone with a 'real' greenhouse.

I am envious of Fidget's garden! Very nice, even in winter! 

I have 9 baby hellebores that should be ready to plant out next year . . . and some of them are doubles . . anyone want to be envious of me?

Thanks Nut. Will leave it in the kitchen in a corner (nice and cool )

Ooo Fidget, glad it's back (OH won't be!) Hurrah for series link

I have a walk in that I bought from Wilkinsons last year. I had no problems with it last year, no issues with the wind. I have it on my patio, hard up against a 6 foot fence and weighed down the bottom with paving slabs. It has never blown over and I didn't lose any seeds, unlike others it would seem. It isn't in a wind tunnel, but does get buffeted. When it got stormy in Oct I propped my wheelie bin in front of it but gave it no protection during the storms at Christmas (forgot!). It made it through unscathed but developed a small tear in the plastic. Before I had a chance to fix the wind got a hold and ripped it till it was unreparable. A small cost later and I have a new cover  Am looking forward to growing new seeds etc this year
