Will they be ok in the conservatory during the day? Im at work most of the time so can only leave a little window open and its south facing. I have already managed to burn a lettuce leaf (poor thing)

Great. I didn't realise you could plant things underneath. I have always been told they need room!! Well I will happily plant away. I might put some bulbs in for next spring!

So as I said in an earlier post I have ordered plug plants for the first time this year. They arrived today - they are tiny - not a problem, just a project! I will pot them into bigger pots but don't know where best to keep them. I don't have a green house or cold frame. I do have a conservatory but I have just been out there and ita far to hot for young plants. Will they be ok outside during the day then in the conservatory at night? Or does anyone have any better ideas? House not an option - kitchen too small and rest of the house has cream carpets!!

planting under and apple tree

Hi, our house was built in the 50's on top of an apple orchard. We still have a few of the old trees one of which is in the middle of the lawn with a soil border around it. I know you shouldn't really plant anything under the tree (hence the bare soil) but I was wondering if putting a few ground covering bedding plants would be ok? If so what would people recommend? Just to note, the apple production varies - some years great bit red jucy apples, last year tiny bite sized bitter things. I only use them for cooking. All ideas welcome

ill have a look now. What do you plant in yours? I was thinking of lobelia or petunia. The only problem is I have ordered trailing lobelia which should be fine but I  ordered standard not trailing petunia - will these be ok or should I stick to putting these in containers?

Thanks, I also have a larger version of the peony in the front garden, we will be digging up the front garden to make a bigger driveway, will it be suitable to transplant into the back garden? If so what is the best time of year to transplant it?

Bonus - my husband loves game so he will be happy  

It has grown like wild for the last few years, its up against a fence and I have to cut it back a huge ammount every year. I wonder why it has suddenly decided to flower?

Most of these seem to be made of plastic, does this last or does it go brittle?
