Forgot about Chionodoxa x allenii which I think I have got.

What's the best way to shade a greenhouse?

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 12:17

Best place for shading is on the outside of the glass, that way it stops the inside from heating up. We use green shade natting draped over the ridges. But the best way of all, is to put wooden sltas over the roof, expensive though.

Chionodoxa sardonica, sold as Pink Giant, but no-one can see any difference between the species and the named one.

There is also C. forbesii Blue Giant

There is also C.luciliae which comes in blue, white and supposedly pink (never seen that one)

There is C sardensis and C nana which I have never seen either.

There is also a form of C. luciliae which flowers much earlier called C.l. Valentine Day.

Modern research seems to suggest that unlike Monsanto claims, it is NOT totally deactivated on contact with the soil. Reisdues have been found in food crops.

Not that there is any other way of removing ground elder,  so I would suggest trying as best you can only to get the liquid on the leaves and not on bare soil. Counsel of excellence that, easier said than done.

Ok, the old Woodshed collpased under the snow, so we need a new one. Any opinions as to the best? Tongue and groove? Overlap? Feather edge? None of those words mean much to me.

TIA

Today I feel so happy....

The moles are ruining the Roadside border, the badgers have dug up and eaten all the tulips in the bottom area, I bought too small a net for the Fruit cage, I have bitten my tongue badly and it hurts and I am still HAPPY. Worked outside all day, the Pulsatillas are just about to flower and we have been married 44 years yesterday. What could be better?

Libertias....who knows em?

Die of cold here, shame really.

Great idea the pots, until a badger (we think) came along, dug up the pots, emptied them out and ate all the contents.
