Maybe the old bubble wrap ,loads of us use it,line the greenhouse for about £20 or wrap the pots up in it works well for me.

Is it safe to plant Neem tree 2 mtr away from house

I use neem oil as a garden / greenhouse bug spray, information via net says its quite a clever oil and is very good bug friendly, and used in many countries since time began sort of, I also found that trying to grow one was a in UK so bought the oil via the net, fancy having a tree full of it sell it by the bucket,

Correct iGrow, mine was a Bulk wine container, it is perfect for what i need and due to the amount of water it holds the connected hoses work a treat all over the garden,no water buckets anymore its so easy now.

I picked up a 1000 ltr water but of the net £25 and local ,iv fitted it in the corner of the garden behind some hedge and connected the downpipe of the rain gutter to it ,also for £5 i got the double hosepipe connector for it ,all works a treat ,Trouble is they normaly cost £50 AND £50 to del as many as you want. but i thought id let you know they are so easy to fit and use ,wot 1000 ltres thats got to be  erm a lot of water butts ,and all them taps and stands ,is it 260 gallons about  fruit trees are in for a treat next year,
