I would pot the fuschias into slightly larger pots, you may need to do this again before they are ready to go out.

Its nice to treat yourself isnt it? I think us gardeners should do it more often.

Morning fellow forkers, wet and foggy here, looks more like autumn.

Tracry you will definetely feel better once you star using your greenhouse, they are great placs to go and hide.

Now dont laugh, but I am off to the gym this morning, I really have to do something about the weight that is pileing on. When I was working, a combination of stress and walking miles round the hospital probably help to keep the weight off.

If I survive, I might go on a small tour of local GCs, not to buy anything of course, just to see what they are selling.

Have a good day everyone, only about 33 years till retirement for all you 27 year olds.

Hi and welcome newbies.

One of the problems of having friends to stay, is the large amount of food you get in. I have been snacking all day on the left overs.

Lot of seedling pricking out done today, I just dont know where to put them. Greenhouse is full, porch is full, window ledges are full.and living room floor in the bay window is full of large pots, filled with Cannas.

Hope everyone had good days, going to be another cold night so protect those baby plants.

I agree with both of the above. My understanding of physics, suggests that, windows in the roof, and, on opposite sides, would encourage better airflow

Morning all, heavy frost here, but very sunny.

I see you lot have been very busy this weekend, whilst I have been entertaining. Judging by the number of empty wine bottles we clleared away last night, We must have entertained well.

Really need to be in garden today, but I think it will be a planning day, rather than a doing day.

Hope work is ok for the workers and, that others get into their gardens. Speedy recoveries to the sick.

Greenhouse Staging

Posted: 24/03/2014 at 08:38

I think it would be well worth trying to make your own, as bought aluminium staging is very expensive.

On one side of my greenhouse I use trestles, with two layers of planking to form two stages. These work well and were cheap to make.

I find that I am always looking for more space for seed trays, cuttings, mini plants etc., so put in as much staging as you can.
