Damp in greenhouse

Posted: 23/10/2013 at 09:52

Last year I lost a number of plants due to excessive damp in my greenhouse, which is heated by an electric fan heater, and occasionally a parafin heater,


 How can I avoid this this winter. Help please!!

Leaking greenhouse

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 11:50

I have had my aluminium  greenhouse for a number of years. Recently I noticed that it seems to be leaking badly - trays overflowing with water after heavy rain.

Last year I lost a number of overwintered plants and I suspect this leaking caused this.

Think it is a maintenance problem - I have not done any


Any advice welcome

The leeks on my  allotment have gone to seed. Are they still alright to use for cooking.?  The centre seem to be a bit soft.

Also any hints on growing show leeks, I am taking part in a local competition only a bit of fun, but I would like to have a decent entry.

When I got my allotmet much of it was overgrown. I cleared one area and then used that to plant for the first year. Then I carried on clearing the rest of the plot. It is such fun.
