definitely right about addictive I have 14 and bought another 3 I think I have a problem lol.

Roses

I spray mine with sodium bicarb and washing up liquid weekly and after it rains. This greatly reduced the blackspot in my roses and is cheap. The bicarb makes the surface alkaline which the black spot doesn't like. The washing up liquid makes it stick.

Sowing Poppy Seeds

I was successful with Danish flag poppys last year however I only got one Californian poppy. My theory was this was due to the cold spring killing them off.

Depends what clematis your going to put in but really if you can I would use deep pots or they just wont do very well and it wont be worthwhile. Can you not make your own up out of old decking or something like that. I would use patio clematis also.

Basically I am going to start sowing a lot of plants in march. I have a lot of cuttings on the window sill and a couple of seeds.

Will the following survive in my mini greenhouse

Aquilegia

Hardy geranium

young clematis from morrisons

campanula

I have the option to keep them inside for now and all have been growing since september apart from the clematis which I just bought. Its just it would be easier as I will be tight on windowsill space.
