I've cleaned out my greenhouse

Posted: 18/08/2014 at 18:58

Hi all, after years of neglect I've cleaned the glass inside and out, (except one side that will have to wait til the hedge is cut). 

I've asked all the spider to leave, removed their webs, the snails and the dead insects, cleaned out the dirty pots and put them in the shed, removed the mouse nest from under the potting bench and now there's room to grow something.

Am I too late to do cuttings from such as rue, thymes, Persicaria 'Red Dragon' and dianthus?

Tree ID please.

It's a fallacy that you can't move paeonies. We  had a thread on this last year and lots of us had moved them with total success. 

It's true that they don't like being planted to deeply

Got it. Any bulbs will do the pushing but avoid large leafy ones, the leaves will swamp the underplanting. Crocuses are good for spring. and the smaller alliums for summer

It will be the low growing perennials that suffer if anything does, from lack of light.

I though daisies for the bellis.

Not sure I've really grasped what it is your asking CharleyD

Bulbs will push through whatever's there. Everything else needs its own space

clarky you've got quite a lot of invasive stuff there. Are you sure you want to add comphrey. The native comphrey, Symphytum officinale, is a huge plant that seeds around everywhere and the roots are deep. I have some in my wild garden but I wouldn't recommend it for a 'normal' garden.

But perhaps you don't have a 'normal' garden
