Greenhouse Gallery

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 09:15

That is a fantastic sized greenhouse and so clean and neat and tidy.

My greenhouse hasnt been empty at all this year, or any year really, I have 3 of them and 2 conservatories and they are permanently full. As soon as the summer bedding was out they had tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries, then they were full of biennial seeds for next year,now full of perennial seedlings, all pricked out,  the conservatories full with fuchsia and geranium cuttings for next year, 

I need another greenhouse! I have bought new plastic covers for 2 of those that get shredded in the wind, the shelves are full already.


Harvested this today.

Nature is very hard. Plants have come and gone and come back long before someone tried to turn it into a science.

Over millions of years plants have become extict and new ones from a tougher strain have taken their place, of course we are doomed, we have all got to go sometime and we will be replaced by more.

Penstemon cuttings

Personally I wouldnt leave them outside, but I do pamper my plants a bit., you see, penstemons dont always survive their first winter even if they went in as big plants.

Can they share you bedroom jjust for now.

CT, you will know when they root as the roots will show out the bottom of the pot. They will be showing new healthy leaves.

Thats what I say matty!

If they are rooted they can go in your greenhouse, its just to get them started. Maybe do them at the start of september next year and they will be ok outside in the greenhouse then.

Runner beans II = no beans !!

I grow Firestorm, they dont need bees.

The more I read about saving beans the more I think its just not worth it.

End of the season thoughts

I have loads of work to do as well. I havent even emptied my annuals out of tubs and baskets, let alone thought about planting daff or hyacinths. No rush for tulips, end of november for those. Still lots of plants need planting out. 

I did get the wallflowers, some aubretia and some forget me nots in the ground yesterday, lots more to do though.
