Greenhouse heater thermostat appears not to be working very well.
0.2 C at the mo!!!
I've turned it up a bit. I was going to pot up the erythroniums as the ground is solid. But the compost is solid too, i've put it against the heater to defrost.
Does anyone grow erythroniums? I bought a single one in a 5 inch pot. Do I put one bulb(corm??/) per pot, if so 3 , 4 ,or 5 inch pot?
Must check hellebore seeds for any signs of life. I wasn't expecting any seedlings until March.
We now appear to have freezing fog. A trip to the local garden centre gave us, one packet of mammoth onion seed, some nougat for mum, some half price xmas decorations. OH wanted that silver lametta stuff for xmas tree, cant get silver, but now have gold for next year.
Also they have a lovely huge new cafe, selling good coffee.
Shame they had bugger all in the way of decent plants to fill the bed at mums, where we are taking up a row of paving slabs. Oh well, I have bulbs in pots that we can use to fill it up until summer bedding is ready.
