First greenhouse - partition or not?

Posted: 05/09/2014 at 21:14

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.

Any wine makers out there?

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

First greenhouse - partition or not?

No answer but I've never understood why a partition in a GH wouldn't have a dropped cill. Mine has but we had to fight for it and when it was delivered it had a short door to fit a raised cill. so had to collect another.

 

Bellis pink daisy - confused

Posted: 05/09/2014 at 17:42

Bellis perennis are your common or garden daisies, they are perennial. I think all those large flowered bedding daisies are cultivars of that and should be perennial as well.

However I don't grow them and it's possible they're hybrids.

If the leaves are spreading in the pot it's a perennial.

 Don't let them seed as over time they will seed back to the species which some classify as a lawn weed.
