Greenhouse Heating

Posted: 25/10/2016 at 12:12

Dai the Lawn, that happened with my 2 funnel paraffin heater, then it started making soot and I just couldn't adjust it properly so I bought another. Always a bit of hassle, but I didn't have an electricity  supply to the GH. Then, some years ago, I met 2nd OH and he arranged an electricity supply and gave me a small heater. It's so much easier.

Feeling drained and headachey. Family dispute yesterday.


Your winter interest area sounds a lovely idea Obelixx.


Glad you enjoyed your visit DD.

They are lovely Yvie, what a lot you still have out. My dahlias are now frosted and I will be digging up the ones in pots to make way for spring bedding in the next couple of days.

I didn't think Lesley was the worst, but, if she would have had to jive next week then I think it's just as well she's out.


I really think Ed should go next. Can't understand why Daisy was in the dance off. I think she's the best woman dancer. Maybe her costume wasn't pretty enough.

Frances Tophill is often on Gardener's World now, to add to the other women gardeners. She's the one who visited gardens in extreme spots.


Agree with aym about Monty's banana. It's something most of us probably don't have and he's spent some time last year and this year digging it up for the winter. I couldn't have one anyway, it's just too big and heavy. I prefer flowers anyway.

Love the colour of your Irises, Pat. If you don't have English bluebells then having Spanish ones doesn't matter. They are lovely anyway.

Morning all.


Such sad news from pdoc. When will it end?


Raining. Heating oil coming this morning, hopefully. Last week he never arrived because he couldn't find the house. Secretary said she'd given him detailed instructions.

They are very pretty but they are what we call Spanish bluebells and people are worrying that they will take over from the native English ones as they are very vigorous. The English ones are scented. Bit like grey squirrels chased away the red ones!

Hurray, Monty said on the last programme that it will stay an hour long when it starts again in March!
