I've cleaned out my greenhouse

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 21:21

Cuttings, they have lids on the propagators but no heat, and some shade (a sheet) to stop them getting fried. 

Is there anything else I need to do?

Cherry Laurel hedging

I'd nip out the ends of all the stems, not much, just a couple of leaf's worth. It will encourage it to bush out. I don't think it's too late in the season to do that. Don't be tempted to just let it go, it could end up a bit 'see through'

I'd do a chop all round to get them bushy. Have you any idea how big a laurel is if you leave it unpruned   

I shall be (or OH will be) doing a big chop on a couple of ours this year as they're going into the electric wires along the road.

The width matches the height

Could you identify this dying berry bush/tree?

The one that really puzzles me is the number of people who talk of syringa when the plant is a philadelphus

Kniphofia

I tend to sow fresh as well, things always germinate better fresh, but then if they germinate quickly you have very young plants to see through the winter. OK if you have a heated GH to protect them.

I don't know if kniphofia go dormant but they won't need cold to break the dormancy or they'd have died out by now.

Dfingers, I fear It's too late for me. Too many years have passed and too much still to learn. 

Plus every time I learn something new I forget something old
