What type of Bamboo??

Posted: 09/04/2013 at 22:21

i would look for a clump forming bamboo, it may take abit longer to reach a good height, but will save you alot of headaches and digging it back out, there are loads of places on the internet to buy them.

i also lift my tulips but i do this just after flowering then pot them in pots put them in the green house and let them die down then dry them off and replant them in november time and this works for me.

Heating a greenhouse

Posted: 09/04/2013 at 21:56

i started off using a paraffin heater and had the same problems with the black sooty stuff all over the greenhouse and did my plants and seedlings no good, in fact i lost quite a few, i stopped using it and went onto an electric fan heater with thermostat which i would recommend plants perked up and started growing strong and you can control the temp so much better instead of it being all over the place.
