Fruit and veg for the greenhouse

Posted: 05/06/2013 at 13:21

Peas are pretty hardy, don't think they'll like the heat in a GH. In the summer grow what everyone has said in it and in spring use it for seed sowing and keeping young plants before hardening off.

Mystery plant

You have to dig quite deep to get it all up. Be careful if there are children around. The berries are bright and attractive, but toxic and they burn the mouth and throat. It is an attractive wild flower though.

MORNING FORKERS

I haven't had an email for Morning Forkers since 30th May, so have lots of pages to catch up on. As I post on several threads I hadn't realised. I wonder what else has been left out? Got a bit further than Blackest's lovely photos of wild garlic, so will read the rest in between gardening drink breaks. It's a lovely day today.

Lovely garden and photos (which enlarge beautifully), lots of flowers out. Only looks about 1 week behind Dordorgne. Normally 3 weeks behind. Shows what awful weather we've had here.

How hot is it? In degrees? Here it was a lovely day yesterday, but breezy, 19° - not really what I'd call hot.

After seeing LeadFarmer's photo of Dr. Ruppel flowering last year, I wanted one badly and couldn't find one anywhere, not even when I went to England in April. Then local French supermarket had one in large pot in tight bud. Bought it, it was 2 inside the pot and I was pleased. But when flowers came out they were very pale and I think they are Nelly Moser, which I have already
