Beginner with a greenhouse

Posted: 01/02/2016 at 14:19

If the greenhouses are unheated then you can't sow anything tender yet, like half hardy annuals. You can sow sweet peas, broad beans, onions, some peas. Not tomatoes yet. I sow mostly in March in the unheated greenhouse, or indoors or in heated propagators.

If you prune group 1 clematis now, such as montanas, you will lose a lot of the flowers.

Nanny Beach, did you know that there is already a thread with almost the same title?

Here it is in case you want to have a look. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/anyone-done-any-gardening-today/590988-113.html 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Still raining, but just drizzle, looks as though it may clear up. Do we still use that weather thread we used to have?

We go to Eastbourne on Thursday to pack up for the move to our Norfolk cottage. Long drive to Dieppe. Back by the tunnel on the way home from Norfolk. Will stay with Son 1 in mid France on the way home. I hope the tunnel isn't still being attacked by those poor immigrants in Calais. I heard that Medecins sans Frontières had built them a new camp.

Don't overdo it, Pat. You'll need to rest more, having been ill. Dust can wait.

Do I need to do anything to my Salvia

Yes, cut them off. It will grow from the bottom. If you cut the flower spikes off as they fade it will flower for longer.

Good luck with new job punkdoc's OH.

Are you good with your fists punkdoc?

Rained all day, just come back from wet walk with dog, getting dark.

Have been mending clothes belonging to OH this afternoon. He gets attached to his clothes until they are all frayed around the bottom. Sewed a new band around the bottom of his favourite summer jacket, he wouldn't let me throw it away last year. It was fiddlier than I thought.

Sometimes it's maddening. I put a lot of seed packets in a used supermarket bag and the bag is turning into white flakes.
