Oh of course!!  What an idiot I am...thank you.

I agree about the south west.  They've had a bad time.

We've only had a couple of power cuts and we do have a soggy bottom.

I haven't been here for months but I'm getting withdrawal symptoms not being able to work in my garden yet.

Good evening

What a lovely day today, sunshine and clear skies but quite cold.

Finished bubble wrapping the inside of our greenhouse but my feet got cold, so we came in.  Hopefully, we will do some weeding and leaf collecting tomorrow, it's all go in the garden still.

I do believe izzy is right.

Greenhouse gas for heating

I am sure that propane is for outside use as it doesn't freeze as quickly as butane.

So if you are planning on keeping the bottle outside it might be the best bet.

We gave up on parrafin because it made the greenhouse wet with condensation, I have no idea if gas heaters do this though.  We now have an electric heater and have it on frost free setting and it keeps the atmosphere warm and dry.

Hi, has anyone got a green tomato chutney recipe?

I'm not a regular poster and I still don't know my way around the forum but I enjoy reading the posts.

Softwood cuttings are best taken in spring.

Hardwood cuttings in autumn.

Thats the advice from my fuchsia grower but to be honest if you put them in a frost free cold frame so they don't dry out, they should over winter quite well.

I use a compost, sand and vermiculite mix.

I will be starting my cuttings at the end of August and they are kept in a frost free greenhouse over winter, along with the parent plants.

Thanks very much for your replies, it's a great deal of help.

Thought it was too hot and dry to do at the moment, don't want to make the lawn look worse than it is

Never gave the foxes a thought!

I've just joined today and not sure where to post yet!

I've been told I can put fish blood and bone on my lawn but I'm not sure of the quantity to use.   And do I water it in immediately?
