I deleted some and found them almost all gone, which is a shame because I don't know who sent what on the seed swap.

Garden Pictures 2015

Posted: 18/07/2015 at 15:12
Beautiful gladioli, I don't find them easy to grow, they are hopeless here, I don't even bother.

Verdun, I couldn't find that particular grass in my garden centre, but I bought a Cortaderia Rosea, a pink pampas grass, it says nice near water so hopefully it will fill the space behind the pond.
I will look out for seeds of your grass.

DD, I am so sorry you are feeling down, I can understand why, what horrible people, maybe you could just mention that the other reviewers were all very happy and you are very sorry they weren't, try to turn it so they feel guilty if you can, say how terribly sorry you are that they weren't happy and you will rectify all their grievances. Better that than trying to justify yourself as you say, that's just what it sounds like.

Rose Jam?

Or rose petal wine. I don't make jam, I would only want to eat, but my mum use to make the wine.

Greenhouse dilema

Posted: 17/07/2015 at 14:14

I agree with Hosta there, a sliding door can be left open a few inches in the winter for ventilation a, more difficult on an opening one.

Whichever one you get, make sure it's the biggest you can afford, you never have enough greenhouse space. Toughened glass is best if you have dogs or kids, mine's just ordinary stuff and does the job.

You would swoon if you saw Hostafans! 

Insulating Greenhouses

Posted: 17/07/2015 at 14:06

I use bubble wrap and clips, got off eBay but it's only lasted three years, I leave it up all through summer as well as the insulation works both ways.

for the money, and it was cheap, I have bought another roll and will do it again.
