Dismantling a wooden glasshouse

Posted: 10/02/2015 at 15:40
Hi all, I'm looking at buying a second hand very large glasshouse (10 x 5 metres). It is in fairly good order but is in excess of 50 years old. Anyone done this sort of thing before? My first job would be to remove all the glass and then attempt to break it up in such a way that it isn't damaged and can be rebuilt. Any tips appreciated.

Are they any good now

Autumn raspberry are cut down every year anyway. If they are summer they are still good but no fruit this year.

Blackcurrant will take a few years to grow back but again may be ok.

This looks like a challenge!

I'm in. ill probably start with the free zinnia seeds in next month gardeners world! I've got some dahlia plans as well and always grow sunflowers. This year I think I'll try several different types.

Photos due mid summer!

Are you brave enough?

I moved into a new home 18 months ago with big plans for the large mature garden. Whilst I have done a lot I have yet had the bravery to really do what I want. An example is 90 foot run or mature rhododendron about 8 foot tall. Whilst I admire them I would prefer a more structured look and would love to swap then it for an 8 foot yew headge. The desire to wait 6 odd years for this is probably the thing holding me back but I guess that's what gardening is all about, patience! Still if I had been brave enough 12 months ago at least I would have a 2 foot hedge now. Anyone else having trouble creating their perfect garden because they aren't brave enough to rip out the old?

Wait for a dry day and rake them away. Don't walk on them either.

Rotting Dahlias

Posted: 11/01/2015 at 16:44
I went to check on my dahlias which I am storing in my garage. They are packed in dry compost in mushroom boxes so plenty of air around them. Trouble is many have rotted through and a lot are covered with a white mould. Any ideas how to save them? I was considering just potting them up now. Im guessing its a bit damp maybe I could try moving them indoors for a while?
