You could have all of them the same colour e.g. white, but different types that would flower over a long season.

Indoor stylish hydroponics?

Posted: 01/04/2014 at 20:45

What will happen with the highly nutritious water used for the hydroponic growing? After it is used, it will be poured away. It will then enter eventually into the waterways, carrying all those nutrients...and all the water plants will grow and grow and de-oxygenate the water and the river will be dead

That is your bed time story for tonight children.

Help! Interested in taking a look at my new gardening social network site?

Asier Galdos link takes you to youtube, a jolly tune and some kind of lesson that is quite incomprehensible on how to use some website

Dove, you are quite right; we've got plenty of cake and Verdun to tease, what more could we want?

KEF, is your glass horticultural grade or the re-inforced stuff? You may need to get the re-inforced stuff cut professionally. Hopefully someone here will let you know.

philippa, thank you for that information, I'll see if I have stuff nearer the time.

Rosie, when I saw nutcutlet yesterday (we went on an ngs visit) she suggested that I could fit far more into the car if the plants were just dug up and put into plastic bags. Are there people at the plant creche who could then pot them on? I could bring pots, but obviously not compost.
