Getting disillusioned with my greenhouse

Posted: 11/08/2016 at 07:22

Well I decided to brutal, removed everything form the greenhouse gave it a really good clean and even  used a sulphur candle, I'm not going to store empty plant pots in there any longer even though they are all washed out and when I give it all another go next year I will look into plants such as tagaets. Verdum you might have hit the nail on the head with plants growing next to the greenhous, I put some low growing ones in along one side earlier this year which I will now be replanting somewhere else this wkend.


thanks for all the tips :-)

Getting disillusioned with my greenhouse

Hi... Any tips and advice would be very welcome.. I've had my greenhouse for 3 years now.. Ist year was fantastic, this year a disaster.. slugs and white fly.. I cleaned and disinfected my greenhouse from top to bottom before I started any seedlings off. From experience can you just have a bad year or am I doing something wrong?  

Bumpy and uneven grass

Whats true lute? sorry if it's a silly question. I wasn't thinking of starting with new grass tomorrow just preparing the soil and trying to get it in the best condition I can but if you're suggesting October I might be best waiting

Im in West Yorkshire and the garden is south facing.. There are some big trees near by that should really be a park not on a housing estate. I've got 3 compost bins full and ready and waiting to be used. Would I have to dig up grass that's already there before using a rotivator? I would like to make a start on it tomorrow if I can 😀

this is a long on going project of mine, my idea is to end up with a garden that doesn't take up all of my time and one that I can actually start to enjoy rather than it feeling like a chore. I had a curved raised wall built last year that I have filled with pebbles and just finished a decking area so it's now time to think of what I would like to do with the grass.. At the moment there is as much moss in it as grass so I'm thinking that the only way I can so all my problems is dig it all up and start from the beginning

hi all, I'm in the middle of making me garden over and looking for any suggestions, hints and tips for evening out a lumpy and bumpy grass. My garden is on a slope which doesn't help.


many thanks :-)
