When I was at school the Wagonwheels in the tuck shop were enormous, now they seem quite small.

Yes to conservatory, but May would be safer.

Take care where you put the mouse traps

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 19:20

I have just put traps in the GH. Something has nipped off the new leaves on my cerinthes  and I found some mouse droppings.

Advice needed

They are normally hardy. I would pot them up and put them in a sheltered place outside, then plant them in the garden in autumn. I leave mine in their pots by the kitchen wall outside.

They should be potted on and kept in a light frost free place and planted out after the risk of frost.

Why is my parffin heater making my greenhouse full of soot?

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 18:14

I have 2 the same, one works well the other makes soot no matter what you do to the wick. OH has now rigged up an electric cable and I have a little electric heater, so much easier.

help me choose a rose. white blooms, climbing, partial shade

I have Mme Alfred Carrière, beautiful, and repeat flowering, but it grows quite big. My New Dawn is pale pink in the sun.

There is a rose called Mme Plantier which can be grown as a small climber. 7ft is small for a climbing rose. It's perfumed, double, white, not very thorny but I think it only flowers once. http://www.davidaustinroses.com/english/showrose.asp?showr=557 or Beales Classic roses have it or read about it here http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/51795/ 

spuds in ?

They say the traditional day is Good Friday, but don't know why as it changes every year! I usually plant mine the end of March or start of April. But I'm in Dordogne, France.

HELLO FORKERS!

Done a lot of pricking out of babies in the GH. Lots more to do though, especially petunias and lobelias.

Hosta is this it? Looks great. I'd wondered about one, but then managed to get spare part for my tractor mower, which they've stopped making.

think it will probably go off sideways though.
