cold frame wood or brick

Posted: 26/01/2014 at 13:10
Hi all,i love it when a question gets results like this and all the answers are relative to the actual first question, some really good ideas here, weve just refitted some d/glazing and im going to use the old windows for a clod frame, im going for a low brick wall, then a sole plate of 4x2 timber screwed onto the top of the walls and then the windows, i might even hinge them, iv also done one before by just using the actual glass easily taken out of the frames makes them simple to move off and on the frame, and as Dave says polystyrene insulation, i think Higgies ideas is good nice and easy to do, good luck all

Hi Dove ,Kates just finished planting our 2 new apples as directed by the site foremen (me ) (through your advice) and look really good nicely surprised to find really good loamy light well draining light brown soil with a hint of sand,also all the rain we had only reached about 8 inches down then it was nicely damp ,Now how much water do you think per tree iv given them half a gallon so far ?? And did you read Bob the Gardener,s now a LEGEND ,he will probably start charging for services rendered soon ,i can just see it Monty and Bob the legend,
And as advised Kate gets a reward in the local tonight Vodka ,n,Coke n a pintobitta B lucky Alan

Hi Cherry,there are a good few blueberries to think of, iv been looking for some time,got some good advice from Bob the Gardener,some are self fertile some not, so make sure you know which is which (BBC Gardening) on line is good it also has a video on it, it seems bluecrop is very popular Nelson and Duke ,but it depends eat of the bush or jams as they do vary in taste, Patriot sounds pretty good as well ,this year im going for 2 or 3 mixed, in big pots they seem to like pots, and like to have other blueberries around soil important im useing J/I no 3 ericaceous and seaweed so good luck,
