growing light advice

Posted: 14/02/2015 at 09:48

I am going to buy a growing light with reflector for my small outbuilding room. I've not used one before,so any advice would be gratefully received. I am planning on using a timer and grow flowers in there with an oil radiator for warmth.

rooting cut flowers.what to do?

Posted: 14/02/2015 at 09:22

I bought some lovely chrysanthemum cut flowers and they've started rooting! I've changed  the water regularly,but other than that what can I do to keep these going and eventually put them in the garden.


 

should i just give up or buy a new fork!?

I did this trying to dig up a 7 foot (triffid) cardoon.

I need a new fork,what make is best and what is the best value?

Buy cheap,you buy twice!

Thanks. I might  pull it up as it is blocking my view of prettier plants. I am always chopping and changing my garden.

I thought I grew this but it is starting to look like a weed,I am going on holiday for two weeks and I don't want it self seeding while I am away.

On an another note I am annoyed as I am going to miss some of my agapanthus coming into flower.

 I am looking forward to seed swapping for next year. I have really got into sweet peas,cutting them and bringing them indoors for everyone to enjoy.

I think I inherited this and it has never flowered. Do I keep or compost. Looks similar to a day Lily but should be in flower now.

I have an astrantia that wasn't doing very well in my garden,it hadn't grown and the leaves were a bit brown and straggly. So I have dug it up and put it in a pot to give it some tlc. It is away from slugs and in plain sight so I can water it and so forth. Try this method but don't get rid as some plants will come back next year.
