Will greenhouse need heating?

Posted: 10/09/2017 at 14:06

If your stuck for indoor space you could buy one of those cheap plastic greenhouses and put inside your glass one. 

Depends which plants you have, I've never needed heat for overwintering anything, but if you have tropicals then you will. 

What is this?

Maybe it's their Lavender and they've just pruned it.

Please identify this plant

Strangely, I'd never actually seen one of these plants until this week when we visited a gardens where they were growing in their walled veg garden, then, some one on our site offered seeds so I'm going to grow it next year. I like it, some dont.

Poorly Roses

I've given up with roses for the very same reasons, doesn't matter what I do, the problems are always there at some time of the year.  'they' do say that roses prefer polluted air and that pure country air doesn't suit, maybe they don't like my acid soil, whatever the reason, they're going this winter.

Beautiful post and beautiful garden. 

I am so pleased to hear that you value what you have.  The world has had difficult times ever since it first began and it always will,  there's not point in dwelling on those things, especially things you have no control over, and I can see that you really appreciate what you have in that lovely garden. 

Thnak you for such an uplifting post. 

Tree prunining/shaping

That was very good, mine cost £3,000.00. He was a very qualified surgeon, he looks after grounds belonging to a famous star around the Oxford area. There where two of them, the trees were huge, they left everything as if they'd never been although I did ask them to leave the huge pile of chipping some from the smaller branches.

Bumping up for you as you've had no replys, , I had trees taken down, beech and sycamore, it was very expensive, into thousands, but they were very big trees.

Like any other job, as not many do it, they can charge what they like.

We are the only people in our line of work so could charge lots, we don't, but that's what happens when no one else can do it.

At  end of the day, it's up to you what you are prepared to pay and how much you want it done.
