Pam -help-I am growing Marketmore in the greenhouse-the seeds courtesy of Dean-packet says outdoor does it matter?

We have only ever grown Marketmore outside Geoff - it is a lovely cue   They grow well up a wigwam of canes so don't take up too much space - do you really want to grow them in your greenhouse?

Last year was a bad year - I am sure this year will be better

I plant my cues on top of a little mound of compost - the one thing that cues hate is water around the base of the plants. Feed and water them regularly,mist the plants to stop red spider mites getting a hold and lets hope for some good weather

Good evening everyone
I like it on here so won't be going anywhere else -I thought it a bit odd starting another thread.
Barry helped me sort out greenhouse no.3 today so I can carry on sorting my bigger plants out. 3pots of Osteospermums survived in the cold greenhouse - they looked a bit ropey but after I cleaned them up and trimmed them back they look o.k. I will give them a feed tomorrow. I have been in the greenhouses for most of the day -it feels good to get so much done
Becks or Bunny - do you have any spare dinner please - don't feel like cooking!

Bunny - quite a few trees in Sainsburys car park are completely wrapped up in green netting - looks very odd!
The building is going to be extended soon and I think parts of the car park will be changing,too - so it wouldn't surprise me to see the trees being dug up sometime soon

Good afternoon all

Lottie - funny you should mention the trees - I asked the girl who works in the clothing dept. about them this morning and she said it was to stop the birds nesting in them!! I thought it would be because they will be digging them up at some point.
