Hanging basket theft

Posted: 07/04/2014 at 19:46

Its because people who take them live very shallow lives and are incapable of producing something beautiful. It's just pure jealously.

You can take a chance with poundland/world and Home Bargains. I bought a hanging basket collection from HB in the new year. You got six packs for 74p! Four out of the six packs have germinated. So I'm going to have two hanging baskets this year for 74p!

Two more Vensus Fly Traps on their way

Just ordered two more Fly Traps from that nice nursery in Hampshire. Really looking forward to them coming, they will keep my lonely Fly Trap company. Last year my VFT did well in the GH keeping any nasty's away from my plants. So I'm adding to the squad.

It's Spring! I'm so excited, I have wet my Plants! 

Cleaning the inside of watering can rose

Thanks Nut, I'll give that a go. It's a good rose so I like to hang on to it for a little while.

Anyone got any tips of how to keep the inside of a watering can rose clean? I have washed out the WC and rinsed the rose out under a tap, but still after a while the holes in the rose get clogged and is only spouting a third of the water. Most annoying

Potting on, large pots/seed trays or single pots?

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 12:23

Hi, Normally I pot on seedlings into single 1inch pots before going up to a bigger size. I have done this with the French marigolds and some other seedlings, however as always, I'm rapidly running out of room in the GH. So last weekend I potted on some seedlings in a large flowerpot, spaced out. They seem OK, a week on, and it saved space in the GH. I'm thinking of doing this again for the remainder of my seedlings.

Has anyone else got any space saving ideas for the greenhouse?
