Lovely baskets Rain

I found some olivey green bin bags in Sainsburys a couple of years - I use these to line my wall baskets as they are not too 'in your face '

Good Afternoon
I have been having a catchup,too
Done some food shopping this morning - my sister is still poorly with the virus thingy- cough,cough,cough is wearing her out so she won,t be shopping tomorrow - I will get some of it for her.
Went for some more compost and also bought 4 pots of Verbena bonariensis
I was going in the greenhouse which does have the heater on but don't even feel like going down the garden at the moment
I use mainly pots and half trays for sowing seeds-depends on the size of the seeds and also how many I am sowing
The peppers,chillies and aubergine s I sowed a few days ago are germinating well
Keep warm everyone

Morning everyone

I had an email from the local NGS organiser about the new show - I think it would be a lot of pressure so won't be asking for an application form

What can I grow in a greenhouse...

Posted: 19/02/2013 at 10:07
Hello Tootles I am lucky that I have 3 greenhouses- one was inherited from my Aunt,another I won in a competition and the largest one we bought secondhand
You will so enjoy yourself this year-I absolutely love my greenhouses - I grow tomatoes,peppers,chillies,aubergine ,cucumbers and 7 or 8 kinds of Basil's in the largest greenhouse,pot plants e.g begonias,streptocarpus,gloxinias,Archimedes etc. in what I call the new greenhouse(even though it is a few years old now) and anything left over goes in Aunties greenhouse along with some summer bulbs e.g polianthes tuberosa ,hymenocallis and bressera
I hope you have a very successful year
