Cannas

Hi Bamboogie, re your reply doesn't your method depend on what part of the country you live ? If I lived up north I don't think this would work.

Tomatoes - End of season

If you have got blight in your tomato vines definitely do not put them on the compost bin.

Cannas

I grow Cannas and yes they need heat early on so they get a longer growing season,which they need to flower. Also don't forget they need to frost once before you put them somewhere frost free, this takes them into dormency.

Greenhouses

I use both, if your heater has got a thermostat it will not have to come on so much if you have got the greenhouse bubble wrapped so saving you money on heating.

I was also thinking Encheveria. Definitely not Aeoniom.

Cobaea Vine

I grow Cobaea every year and I haven't managed to get seed yet, the seed is expensive so going by that maybe it's not easy to get seed.

 

making new fruit trees

some garden nursery centres sell Apple tree whips wich you can use for the rootstock,but I think it might be too late to do this year as the Trees are now going into dormancy for the winter.

Kilmarnock willow

As long has its been growing ok it will probable be ok,the rust and mildew will be on the leaves and as the leaves will soon be dropping for the winter the problem will be gone with the leaves. Make sure you clean all the leaves away and don't put them in the compost.

Heuchera

I'm not sure it will be rust a picture would be good ,

the light coloured Heucheras do not like full sun they will scorch so it might be this.

a rule of thumb is plant the dark leaved Heucheras in the sun and the lighter leaved ones in the shade.
