Greenhouse Heating

Posted: 01/03/2013 at 08:22

I always start off in the house and place the trays on windowsills once they've outgrown their containers, then everything is moved to a paraffin heated greenhouse for the last month or so. This helps to keep costs to a minimum.

If I'm honest, I don't think that's meant to be used as a pond - it's far too small. Looks more like a cascade system for a waterfall.

It's surprising how hot the sun is, even my ponds although a lot bigger than yours heat up rapidly and can get quite hot; even though I have shaded more than half the waters surface. Then problems with green water start.

I'd also net that in late summer otherwise your water will turn black with the rotting leaves in the bottom.

Hope that pond is in full shade, otherwise it's gonna looker greener than pea soup and hotter than a boiling kettle in the summer.

Controling Pumpkins

Pumpkin plants should be stopped, when you have at least 2 fruits setting/swelling per plant. Just cut the end off, by doing this your ensuring the plants energy is towards producing good size fruit and not foliage growth. Sometimes you may find that side shoots form - cut these off too. Feeding the plant once a week with a liquid tomato feed is recommended
