New Greenhouse

Hi, i have my 10 x 8 GH slabs and a soil border on one side. personal i prefer slabs it easier to clean and looks more professional 

I wouldnt put Rhubarb inside the GH, they can get quite large and take up valuable space, a rhubarb will survive outside they very hardy.

I love Dahlias so underrated, some beautiful pictures on here 

I got one large tuber and a few grown from seed. some have been a bit battered with the weather but soldiering on. These are my favorite ones

Very high ridge your GH has GardenerWA,  think mine only 1.6 metre or 5.4' if you old than me , better than my old GH though kept hitting my head on the roof.

 Is your GH sheltered from the wind cause with the roof vents the wind keeps trying to snatch them. I only have my Autovent vent on one side now ( east facing ) and manual on the other.

Yes you can grow wisteria as a bonsai. I dont think a wisteria likes to much shade, i think it got something to do with the sun getting to the flower buds.

leave to die back naturally, you can remove the old corms at the end of the season for more flowers and an overall more healthier plants
