Conservatory Plants

Not Dahlias, they are best outside.0ne of ours is only single glazed so can get cold at night, I just use if for Lilly, Geraniums,fuchsias begonias etc. would like to sow something exotic for in there but I don't think any plant would like the extreme change in temp on a single glazed unit.

I may try my new Canna just up from seeds.

Edited to add a couple of pics, this does take more than a hour every single day to maintain though, so if you haven't the time, I wouldn't recommend it!


Thoughts please

We have a Cornish shovel and a Devon spade, I did try 'go faster' stripes round them but they still only work as fast as I can!

No make on them, they came from the farmers shops donkeys years ago, 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I would say go for it. We had loads of moss so we scarified first, gives the moss killer a better chance. We then used Westland Weed Feed and Moss killer, works a treat, I wouldnt use anything ese now.

what are you excited about?

I am excited because Hostafan is excited, mine are not showing yet.

Also Social Services brought my mum an electric reclining air bed. That was some ecitement.

A while back I was excited  because my car insurance was only 150.00 and I got two baby Oleg toys in babygros with a maggot toy.

Not sure how I would feel if a choc eclair was poked at me unawares!

The spray wont cure the already infected leaves, but like roses, you need to spray before the problem occurs.

Last year I fed them with dried flaked fish food, theres a feeding frenzy when you drop it in, also frozen Daphnea. I still only have the one clump, but then it is a new pond.
