Propagators

Posted: 26/04/2014 at 22:14

Propagator will speed up germination but they are not absolutely necessary. I would sow sweet peas direct in the soil now however.

will my new four tier plastic greenhouse work same as a glass one?

Dahlia and last frost dates

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 18:11

I have a lot of dahlia tubers in my house at the minute the last frost date is the 2nd week of may for my area. Will they be protected enough in a cold frame, mini greenhouse if I put them in the start of may. I grew a lot last year but had room to keep them all indoors but at the moment it is getting like a bit of jungle in here.

My transplanted Rose is wilting - Help

I would give it a really long watering to thoroughly water it in. Sometimes roses sulk when they are transplanted as they are growing. It hasn't rained for a while where I am so maybe its compounded they the fact the soil is dry.
