....just wondered what kind of day jobs the lovely gardening folk on here have. I'm a gardener-come-surveyor. I build warehouses and factories for a living. If you're happy to share, what do you do......?

 

Clematis

 Thanks Bob. I'm not sure I'm patient enough to wait for  a whole year before I plant these fellows out though! I will defo pot them on tomorrow morning in deep pots. I listen to bbc radio Nottingham on Sunday morning. Fab gardening slot from 9-10am! Makes the working week bearable!   

Seed compost

I've found seed compost to be a bit too heavy in the past. Mind, that is probably because of me being an over eager waterer!

Thanks obelisk. When do you think I should plant them out. I was thinking March time? Is it likely that I'll get flowers on them this year?

 They've arrived! We'll packaged albeit the pots are small. They look healthy though. It cost £17 for these four. I went for bees jubilee, early sensation, dr ripples and duchess of Edinburgh. Will let you know how they do. I'm going to put them in the greenhouse until the weather picks up. Might pot them on too before going outside.

I abhor the aggression that is displayed here. Perhaps it isn't intentional, but it really is unnecessary. With so many contradictions and nonsensical comments there is absolutely no point in responding with anything other than a gentle request to plead for folk to please try and be nicer to all who share this little planet of ours. You'll feel better for it, honest!

I'll say no more.

Well said Brumbull. Live and let live people.  

So upsetting to read some of these comments. 

What's the best type of greenhouse

Posted: 25/01/2014 at 11:28

I hadn't thought of lighting a sulphate candle Brumbull. Great idea! I'll copy that if I may, thanks. I was quite surprised at how much more light comes in after cleaning the glass. I felt a wee bit guilty for disturbing the odd spider though! Far too soft for my own good!

Good luck with the hunt Geof3. I hope you find a good un. Now is a great time of year as I found a couple of good ones being sold as people approach a spring clean. I also found a couple listed on ebay by garden centres who we're looking to get rid of old stock.
