You are still ok to plant wallflowers, you can usually buy them from a garden centre or sometimes you can find them at a car boot sale.

I've just been out in the garden and delighted to see the first flower on my Iris Unguicularis, awful name but a delightful Iris. It hopefully will flower off and on all summer.

For what reason do you want to do this, the plants you have suggested are not invasive---- or are you moving house so need to pot them up to take with you ?

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.

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.

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.
