Thanks guys for your advice. I will make a wigwam!! To grow them up. Just need to find a space for that! Or perhaps as suggested I will grow them in pots would look great on my patio. Do they prefer full sun all day or can the be partial shade?

This is the first time I have grown morning glory from seed. I am wondering what it is best to climb up. I have a fixed wire mesh attached to a fence that I grow my sweet peas up. I also have a 6ft wooden fence. My question is. What is the best way to grow these. Should I just let them wind their way up the fence with a little help. Grow them in with the sweet peas or grow them up their own frame? Thanks I advance

I enjoy GW. But joe swift annoys the hell out of me. All the gardens they visit always are in England'. How about visit some of Scotland's amazing gardens !

I purchased a walk in one from tescos last year. Good sturdy construction and it was 29.99. Only problem was in the wind it moved slightly which moved some of the poles inside and knocked the staging. I have now purchased a glass greenhouse. Perhaps if possible buy a plastic one which does not have the staging attached.

I have purchased myself a greenhouse (excited!) now thinking about what to lay it on. Should lay slabs and fix the greenhouse to this and have the slabs create a floor in the greenhouse. It should I create a base using blocks and fix the base to this and use gravel as the floor of the greenhouse. ?

I have an indoor/outdoor cat. She uses a litter tray and I use to wood based cat litter that is a natural product. Can I use this for anything in the garden, I am also going to start composting. Could it be used in this.

Hi guys I am looking to buy my first greenhouse. The spot I have is not in full sun all day. Would be a small greenhouse. 6ft by 4ft perhaps. Does anyone have recommendations about good places to order from and also what's best, brick base or a wooden frame with greenhouse screwed onto this??
