Rhino Greenhouse

Landscaper2 - it would depend on your budget if your buying new, i have an Elite belmont greenhouse I like it very much, but there is plenty very good brands. greenhouse people tend to have good offers. 

nope Utd unlikely to gain there attacking instincts, to slow - no pace - falcao rubbish - rvp gone missing - di maria needs to pull his finger out. need better players like Mel said, I don't think they will finish in the top 4 as well.

I sowed some the other day scarlett queen, it said on the the packet 30-50 days to germinate 

seeds, what now?

what variety of stocks have you grown?  It will probably be to cold for stocks in the shed unless its heated in my opinion, I pot mine up into individual cell trays and keep them in the house until its warmed up enough to move them into the cold greenhouse. they can go in the shed but they will need bring inside in the evening. 

You can sow some more stocks in about 4 weeks time to keep flowers though most of the season.

Great picture pansyface I am not normally a fan of hellebores or healibore paullypaul , you might of just changed my mind  .

I very much enjoyed your video paullypaul .You got a good size garden with great potential , you got a lot of colour in dahlias for a late flower bloom, but not much late spring - early/mid summer in my opinion have you got more plans for extra colour? peonys dont flower long and I would wait until autumn to move them, they do tend to sulk if you disturbe the roots.

How to propagate bedding plants.

I grown some Canna from seed, clipped them with nail clippers and soaked them in warm water for 3 days, 5 out of 5 have germinated 

Cheap plants at Aldi!

Next door neighbour was talking about aldi plants to me yesterday. 24 petunias or 15 geraniums plugs for £1.49 I think she said, Very cheap but to early for petunia plants in my opinion, you got to find somewhere for them to live until mid/late May. I thought the little greenhouse tray was impressive though.

Which Currant Bushes Would You Recommend

Posted: 28/02/2015 at 11:16

This might sound a stupid question but are you meant to cook blackcurrants before eating? I think they taste really sour raw, I eat blackcurrants in pies etc no problem
