I also get rather cross with the shops which sell rooted seedlings in February, the people whom buy them often don't have a place to rear them well, or possibly the knowledge - the plants die, the person thinks he/she cannot 'do' gardening - and spend a second lot of money later - I think this is just a cynical way of getting people to spend more money, which most of us can ill afford these days. 


I second that, Bookertoo......It's something that's annoyed me for years.

Received an email from Peter Beale's Roses this morning to remind me that they have a sale of bare rooted roses at present....just three days left if anyone were interested.

Thank you, pleased to hear that others agree.

Personally I think it's the cheaper type without thermostats that are the biggest waste of time & money.

I can't remember where you live else I'd come over to help you.

There would be a stick of rock in it for you!

Not looking good for the greenhouse, think me and son number 1 are just going to have to attempt it.  Phoned up for a quote for fitting and £150 is the cheapest!!  Just blinking marvellous 

Awww.....that's a blow, Tracey.    Wished I lived nearer, I would offer to help.

Good or bad?

Personally I think they are responsible for a lot of disappointed to newcomers to gardening.

"they are starting to get shoots at the bottom so 'bushing out' which will hopefully make them stronger"

That's a really hopeful sign, Tracy....they will attach to the twigs when the first tendrils develop.
