Green house

Posted: 27/12/2014 at 17:53

I've got lots of seedlings, many off the seed swap, some not too hardys I picked up from a nursery in autumn, nothing tende, (1.4C out there atm), lavenders/fuchsias/rosemarys,  nearly hard.

And some fuchsias as lodgers while works are done at a friend's house

HELLO FORKERS!

Edd, thermometer in GH reading 1.4C. Reading from remote sensor in the house, I'm not going out there

The snow can stay away as long as it likes

Dove, village is generous for the dozen or so houses up here.

I hadn't realised how close the snow was. Ice will be the next issue here. Grit lorry came by once about 15 years ago, I think it was lost. I haven't put a vehicle in a drain yet though

Is there any sign of red pigment anywhere? 

It looks a rather lovely pure white in the photo

White Beam problems

I have 4 whitebeams, the natives, not the fancy ones. One is doing just what Peter's is doing, the others are bare. 

On a reassuring note, this is not the first time I've seen one or more do this.

I think it will depend on what's left at the bottom Mark. If it's too low to get the clean cut below it and the break is rough then water will get in and then rot. If you can get a clean cut you should be OK

SNOW!!!

Hi Vic, it looks like any white hellebore doesn't it?

I'd email that photo to your supplier and ask where the red veins and edging are

SNOW!!!

A bit of heavy wet white lumpy stuff but mostly a lot of rain and still raining. 

Might be another round over night

Dilemma........wot to choose?

I'm always talking about growing less from seed Lyn but it's a bit of an obsession. All the shrubs and perennials are sitting out there now getting their chilling with more to follow in spring

Shrubs from seed generally means a year or 2 nurturing in a pot at least, maybe more.

I must be nuts
