New Gardening TV Show

Posted: 08/01/2016 at 11:20

In all the ears of watching TV programmes about gardening I cannot remember one being dedicated to indoor plants. House plants or Conservatory ones that is, not greenhouse ones.

Not that it would be any good to us as we have not got any.

No, sorry, just see the flash of red berries when we go past.

There is also a mixed coloured,low hedge of this in Oswestry which is a fairly cold part of the West Midlands, so it should be ok in any aspect in the I.O.M.

Dopey question for the day...

Leaves wrong for Celandine and even with the mild weather ours is only just beginning to show leaves.

There is a fabulous Pyracantha free standing hedge on the side of a road we often drive along.near to Bridgemere Garden Centre, so I suppose that it is possible. Problem as far as I can see is that it is terribly prone to Fireblight, so could succumb if there is any in the area,

Has anyone made their own greenhouse staging?

My staging is made from concrete block walls with 3 feet by 2 feet paving slabs  laid horizontally on top. But then, my staging has to support a rock garden.

If you then scroll through the images you will come to the next set of benches which are paving slabs laid on fencepost legs.

Sorry cannot get the images to show directly.

 

 

On a positive note

Definitely when the very expensive plant which died upon planting, suddenly throws up new shoots from the roots which were not dug out.

Very large aphids which are slightly on the grey side and found on Lupins could be American Lupin aphids. We had to give up growing these plants because we never could get rid of the pests and the plants did not thrive. We don't spray either, but I think in this case I would use an eco-friendly insecticide, say something like a plant based horticultural soft soap.
