I haven't got much ladies bedstraw at the moment but lots of hedge bedstraw. Not sure they're breeding here though, It takes 2 and most years I only see one.

Polypots?

I've used them, they're OK but if you have to move them around and they change shape you can dislodge roots.

I associate them with bedstraws Lyn but as non natives they've probably had to adapt a bit.

Any wine makers out there?

An organic farmer. How lovely Lyn. I'm surrounded by the complete opposite.

Bottle the gg artjak when it stops sending bubbles through the airlock. The secondary fermentation is just a nice little fizz on the tongue when you drink it.

All wine doesn't go mad initially. Just a good mess when it does.

First greenhouse - partition or not?

To be honest, not much horticulturally speaking but it's even longer than yours and I think it probably adds stabillity to the structure. It does have a low level brace but it's set into the central path and is flat. 

I don't grow tender plants but If I ever did decide to heat/insulate it would be a cheaper option to do half a GH than a whole one.

I don't think you need exactly for wine artjak.

Gooseberry was one of our best, a natural secondary fermentation. Lovely.

I  used a large brewing bucket for the initial wild fermentations then airlocked when they had calmed down a bit
