well blairs the skys the limit i suppose  but seriously i dont mind how big they grow i intend growing them in big pots and have plenty of space.

i have grown cannas and dahlias for the first time this year and the combination of colours, textures and hights has been fabulous so as usual i have to try something new for next year to expand the theme

thanks again

i bought two red bananas yesterday reduced to 4.99 each. i have looked at various sites and found conflicting advice so do i cut them down now and keep them dry for winter or keep them just ticking over for the winter and cut hard back and repot in the spring. obviously they will be in the greenhouse and protected from frost

green house design, advice and experiences please

hi james its 8x14  it replaces a 6x8, it dosnt look very sunny in the picture but of course its lower in the sky at this time of year, in summer it will be in sun all day so have automatic openers on the four double roof vents and two louvres.

it was a big decision but so glad i went for it ( and yes i know how lucky i am)

the picture was taken at 11.15
