Wilting in Greenhouse

I only grow hardy plants and I have a cold GH but no coldframe. My hardening off technique isto wait for a rise in temperature, this week as Pete says, then just put them all outside. They only come in again if REALLY cold weather comes, more than a night frost.  This would be OK for Hesperis and echinops but maybe not antirrhinum

What tree

I'm impressed, Bob. 

Hardwood cuttings from roses

If I was cutting the stems I'd do some cuttings, (if I wanted more bushes), whether or not it was the right time. The wrong time often works.


I don't know roses but if this one hasn't flowered, make sure you're not cutting off the bits that are going to flower. Some flower on the wood that grew last year, some can be cut right back and still flower. I have no idea which one does what, sorry.

Are there any more clues?


Is it definitely one or the other?


ash has a pinnate leaf but it could be a leaflet.


then again it could be a prunus


or something else altogether


In short, I haven't got a clue, I can't even see the pattern of the leaf veins or guess at the size

true punkdoc, apart from those that need a chill, mine are still in the cupboard and likely to stay there for a while.

Hesperis matronalis is, I believe, a plant native to the UK and would probably do better in a cold GH or outside. when the current cold spell is over I'd put it outside. Te echinops is pretty tough as well
