Make do and mend

I made staging for the GH from a really cheap special offer shelving unit from a French supermarket. The extra staging for baby plants in the spring is cheap planks of wood on cheap metal trestles that I take down when the plants go in the cold frames to make room to plant the tomatoes. The cold frames are made from cheap building blocks with air holes in them, lined with polystyrene.

Lovely baby, Blackest. I have 6 grandchildren and youngest son hasn't started yet!

Raining this morning in sunny (?) Dordogne, so we went to the market in Périgueux then did the weekly supermarket shop, bought a parasol (haha) for the garden and had lunch at the Chinese. You can guess, we are retired!

Greenhouse query

I have all those plants outside at the moment, out all year long. But, as Verdun says, the little ones need potting on first.

Please help me identify this really invasive plant!! And how the spread

Greenhouse query

Are you talking about hardy perennials? If so you can plant them in the garden. If they are half hardy annuals you should be able to put them in the greenhouse to keep the frost off, but what temperatures are you getting at night? Is it below zero?

Lucky you Dove, have they helped get rid of the slugs?

WW, I sow parsnips fairly thickly in a row and usually enough come up for me to have to thin them out a bit, but this spring the carrots are up but no parsnips.
