Electric propergator question

Posted: 16/03/2014 at 11:55

My propergators are the kind that have no regulator on them so I can't change the temperature setting. Having sown some seeds and placed the trays in the propergators I am wondering if I should lift/remove the lids during the day as it's quite hot in the greenhouse, currently 34. I do have foam type shading so the trays are not in direct sunlight and there is plenty of light getting in. Im just concerned that they will be far to hot and not germinate. Many thanks.

Thank for the replies... Think I'll leave them in their pots and keep in the greenhouse away from frosts until spring.

Watercress

Would you eat watercress if it was growing in your pond? Hubby was given some pond plants by someone who grows them for a living, last year i noticed watercress growing along with them and tugged it out and stuck it on the compost heap. Well this year its growing en mass and hubby informs me that they grow their pond plants  in the fresh water cress beds. So i was wondering as the water in my pond is not fresh nor flowing would you eat it? Many thanks.

I recently bought two Dahlia plants, Bishop of Llandaff and Mystic spirit also a Cosmos 'chocamocha' plant as i want to redo a border in my garden. It then dawned on me that i should maybe have waited untill spring to purchase them as im sure they cannot stay in the ground over winter, they are still in the pots i purchased them in. I was hoping someone could give advice as to the best way of overwintering them i do have an unheated greenhouse, but never seem to have much luck with overwintering plants. Also is it possible to take cuttings/safe seeds from all three. Many thanks.
