I had to put mine in the fridge for 4months! Yes, 4 months, felt like forever, but I nw have some little 2cm seedlings in their own pot, so hopefully they will be flowering in the next few years
Nightgarden, do it to all of them, as sawfly strike on any, but especially gooseberries, just be wary of all your other fruit bushes too.
All my orders with the just pay postage has been rubbish. They all seem to have died and when they state you will be getting plug plants, they are literally 2cms from top of plant to bottom of roots and they normally all die for me. However, I got some free strawberry plants and had a nice harvest from them last year
Funny you should say that artjak, because I was going to create a lavender hedge on each side of my garden path and was wondering whether I'd be able to walk through them in the height of summer shen bees are around. Might chance it, what do you think, was it worth it?
WOW! Thankyou very much everyone! I'm off to a garden centre later, so will make sure I buy as many of the suggestions I can find! I feel a huge shopping spree coming on and a hole burnt in my bank account :P
This wouldnt solve your dilemma, but may help. Try putting a layer of bubble wrap in you greenhouse (which is what I did last year), then it retains the heat from the daytime much better than usual. Thats the greenest way I can think of, but may only raise the temperature by 5 degrees or so
