Cold frames and greenhouses

Posted: 21/10/2013 at 12:24

Hello, I'm a cold frame fan myself. The ones I have are not the traditional on the ground type. There more of a sturdy mini greenhouse type design, my oh makes them out of bits and pieces. I'll try and find a pics of one of them for you.

If I had more space and money I probably would go for a greenhouse as well as the only thing with my coldframes is that you can't get in them, so when the weathers bad............no gardening. Up to now I've done all my seedsowing etc in them

Having said that OH picked up a greenhouse frame off freecyle and has constructed a sort of square shaped polytunnel using sheets of thick polyethene. It's near water tight now and it's great to be able to walk in there

I have couple of large beech trees at the bottom of the garden and have found that things like primoses, bugle, campions, foxgloves seem to do well.

Sorry to hear about your cat Zoomer, very upsetting. I have a patch called diggys bed,  it was once where my rabbit lived, someone took him Try and keep it mainly white, that spot in the garden is always diggys bed

 

So exciting!

Nice pic Forester I have a tiny pond, to call it a pond is a bit of exageration really, more like a ditch but things do  find their way, no frogs but I do see some toads from time to time

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning everyone, weather looks like it going to hold off so will be out sowing some seeds today. The temporary greenhouse is looking good and almost water tight now, lots more room and somewhere to go when it's raining

I've just started doing some art this year, not painting yet but doing some sketching etc. Great way to relax and get lost in something

Leek mash sounds very tasty

Have a good day everyone

I have a couple that are hardy and they stay in the ground all year round, but there are many that aren't hardy and need protection from the winter temps
