dahlias

Dahlias are fabulous plants. All mine have been flowering since the start of June and show no signs of stopping yet

The dark Leaf single varieties are my favourite, the dark leaves show off the flower colours immensely

I bought a big pot of little seedlings from a local garden centre for £3.50.

Could of got 20-25 plants out of it.

Made 15 good ones and potted them up in the greenhouse.

Planted them all out today with nice healthy root systems

I put my clock back 3 months into the middle of Summer, then I wake up

First greenhouse - advice?

Make sure its clean - I cant stress this enough. Whenever you feel you have a chance to do it then do it.

Coming into the darker/colder months its more essential as moulds can build up quite easily with the moisture levels.

If its mild enough open your doors and windows just to let air flow through.

If you stick to these few basic things, your plants will love you.

Hibiscus

Just moved my 5 feet Hibiscus Syriacus (which has never flowered yet) into the ground.

Now is a good time to plant out deciduous shrubs and trees as most are losing their leaves anyway.

Anyone know what this is please?

Echiveria is generally a houseplant, not very hardy at all. I'd say Dave is on the button.

It was the first I had ever seen, I didnt know what it was. I assumed it was a real Hummingbird until my neighbor told me what it was.

How old is your houseplant?

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 21:41

My oldest houseplant is probably 2-3 years old, an Aloe Vera brought from somewhere I cant remember.

It lives on the window in the downstairs loo with not a great deal of sunlight.
