Quick GH question

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

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.

Good one KEF. I did briefly know XTC, in another life. So maybe the song was about me.

No sadly not BB2. I tried to be a punk in Southampton, but for some reason it was frowned upon as a medical student. Loved the music, dressed up at weekends, and sometimes did my hair with a mixture of green food dye mixed with Brylcream to make it look spiky. I had this desperate desire to be different from other medical students.

Yes, it is Cow Parsley. I like it in the right places, but it seeds everywhere and, you need to remove at the seedling stage, as it has a tap root.
