Pruning

Posted: 27/02/2016 at 10:38

Depends where you live Celia, If you are in a warm area its OK  but I never prune mine until well into March, after the new buds have started to show. Then they are right off almost to the ground. Its very cold here at the moment, lots of morning frosts and frozen water.

Anyone else strapped for space?

I now only grow most of my seeds in rice/yogurt pots, that way I only get a dozen or so of each plant and can grow lots of different ones. The only ones in trays are Lobelias and Petunias, you cant have too many of those.

Have you got lots of greenhouse space to keep your plants in when you have pricked out MAABOM.

I would agree with Logan about light levels, also be careful not to block the air vents, you could get damping off from too much moisture.

Lots of over enthusiasm this time of the year

Absolutely wonderful, it must take all your time but what you produce must be well worth the hard work. Linda is gorgeous.

Looking forward to seeing more from you.

You rarely see a dead rat, they go underground to die.

I bought a bag of Perlite, thought I'd try it, it was cheap from Amazon, I didn't think of it being so light, when it arrived the bag was almost as tall as me. I tried it on top of seeds but don't like it, so wil mix it in the compost. I have enough to last a life time.

Probably the best bet is buy the best you can afford, read reviews on Amazon. you need to put barriers around or the thing will go Willy nilly over everthing. It won't avoid the dog do, don't think they are smell sensitive

They need to have access to a socket, they come back home when they need recharging and dock themselves.

thats as much as I know about them, not much help.
