Sorry looking good heuchea

Posted: Today at 18:24

I've given up with Heucheras because of vine weevil. If it's vine weevil, a gentle tug of the top growth should bring it free, if it still holds, you might be in luck.

Heated Propagators

Posted: Today at 11:54

welcome Mark.

I'd go with the thermostatic version. I've just built a raised heated propagator bench in my polytunnel and I added the thermostat to the heated cable.

If you've the space , you might consider a heated bench. I had the timber and I got 12m of warming cable and the thermostat for £50 . I'd be happy to let you know the suppliers if you'd like.

I'm so sorry to hear your news Verdun. No matter how old we are when we lose our Mum: it's hard . They leave a hole in our lives. 

Warmest wishes to you.

spent the day at A&E having damaged my knee by kneeling for 3 days making my raised beds in the polytunnel.

No gardening for at least 2 days.

Do misplaced apostrophes drive you mad too? 

My first greenhouse

Posted: 22/01/2015 at 19:11

8 x 6 is the most popular sized greenhouse so they're always available. Some folk "inherit" them with a new house and want rid of them. Some just no longer use them.  New is always lovely, but you might get yourself a bargain.
