Green house heaters

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 18:39

I converted to electricity as paraffin is now so pricey, smells and produces so much humidity. I now have a tubular heater attached to a frost buster which kicks in when the temperature drops to about 7. The electrician said it would use about as much as a 100 watt bulb.

Rose Pruning

I've just given my roses a prune to get them in good shape; I'm in the Fens and it isn't very cold at the moment.

Compost question

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 13:52

Tracey, It was a 2 day course with Norfolk Council and Garden Organic (a charity). We are expected to do 30 hours a year promoting composting in the community (last year I did 75 hours and loved every minute). The Council supply us with a gazebo, a wormery, tables, publicity material and quizzes for people to play. We go to village and church fetes, allotment parties, primary schools etc.

Water butt advice

I agree with clueless; it won't cost much to replace the downpipe when you leave (as long as you don't live in a 3 storey house), then you could take the water butt with you. Check the price of downpipe first though, there are some fancy ones that may be pricey.

Compost question

Posted: 05/02/2014 at 17:25

On the composting course I did, they said the worms simply come 'by magic' and it does seem to be true. Also, I think they are not ordinary garden worms; redder, smaller and thinner. Every time I open the lid of the bin there are a few lingering on the edge of the lid.
