HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/02/2015 at 16:24

Started using the Parasene heater I bought from work last year but havent needed until now, fine for a couple of nights.

Woke up this morning to a black soot filled greenhouse. After reading the many reviews all over the internet about this product I'm surprised its still on sale.

I shall be getting my money back for it and trying to get electricity to the greenhouse instead.

On the plus side, nothing seems too damaged in there, though I had to wash out the entire greenhouse and clean all soot off my plants.

Good excuse to clean everything out I guess :P

Leave them alone until mid-april. I would cut back then and they should re-grow fast

They didnt have any today though but they will have 20kg bags back in on Thursday and only £4.99 each.

Freesia - how to get them to be more than an annual

I know freesias are heat-treated before being packed, I guess its difficult to replicate at home.

chillis can be started now, they need a long growing season and some heat to help them germinate

Plant ID help please
