David, I think concrete type blocks that were skimmed over. Looked good on the outside, but stairwells and such gave the feeling of being in a prison, well what I imagine

Cheers for that.

Ann - Further to my last message, I would just add that I  have recently bought a Nikon COOLPIX L27 compact camera for taking those quick impromptu pics. It has a 16MP sensor and slips nicely into my top pocket.......just £39.99 from Argos.

Thanks for your pics, KEF & Ann.

KEF - Is the building material wood or stone?

Ann - If this is your new Fuji, I would have thought auto wold have been your best option......nice pup!

After a brilliant start, it's proving difficult to keep this thread going.....not sure I want to keep posting pictures to myself. 

Hope it doesn't fizzle out!

During a recent visit to Chatsworth House I took this shot of the Joseph Paxton's Conservative Wall. Built in 1832 when he was head gardener for the then Duke & Duchess of Devonshire. It was the forerunner of our greenhouses of today and is now a grade 2 listed building.....Paxton went on to build the famous Chrystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851.

 

Growing Sweet Peas

Hi, pinkquartet....sorry about your techie problems.

To answer your query, I think we need to go back to basics. Sweet peas are very hardy and more are ruined by coddling than neglect. Having said that, there are a couple of things to avoid, one is condensation (that applies to all seedlings though) and icy draughts.

From what you say, I think your aluminium greenhouse would be your best option, but be careful not to site them in the vicinity of the unclosed door.

Remember, they will survive frosts of -10c without any problem, just be careful to keep them on the dry side during very cold weather.

looks like you had good weather like us David, hope you had a nice day 

 

Yes, the weather was quite pleasant, Ann....unlike those poor people in the south of the country.

Hope your day was as you would have wished.

Beautiful Christmas morning her in the West Midlands......crisp (5c)  sunny and ideal for walking off the turkey later.

Merry Christmas.
