Hi,

A store on line...'Greenfingers.com' have a really good sale on at present and sell small grow houses and lean too's at reasonable prices. Check them out and if there's anything you think will suit, post back. I'm sure posters will be able to tell you the pro's and con's for each type.

Widgets fit snuggly ontop of canes, and if you drill a few more holes in them they can be used as the joints for netting cages

Hi, happycottontail,

I'd recommend a four shelved plastic grow house, it's ideal for growing seedlings and the shelves can be removed if you wan to grow toms.

What's the weather like in your area?

Over cast all morning, sun got out in the afternoon so it was nice and warm.

I'm away in September and by the time I get back alot of stuff is dying back so started to tidy up the garden and GH. Emptied some pots ready for bulb planting and if the weather's good tomorrow was going to plant up a new strawberry patch.

Four new varieties were introduced to the patch this year and I grew white strawberries for the first time. The plan is to have strawberries from May through to late July/early August.

Jo. They do random checks were I work, don't know how, so there's little chance of sneaking online.

Thanks. Italophile. Got home this evening after being away for a few days and the two bush ones, outdoors, have done really well, one better than the other so will save some seeds, they are begining to go past their best. .

I've tried red pear for two years now, I'm still picking because not all the fruit has BER, but won't be growing again, they've been watered like the other tom varieties which don't have BER...and the crop is poor.  

Itaophile.Can I save seeds from the ripe fruit now, off the plants which have snapped.

Not watched this weeks GW yet. Small brown envelops to store seeds in are ideal once the seeds are dry. Seeds will sweat in plastic and don't dry out. 

I've only saved peas, beans, peppers, chillies and toms seeds. I'm going to branch out and save other stuff this year, not just veg but flowers and herbs  .

Good luck with the fig tree.

Thanks you guys.

I was getting abit down hearted because I don't usually come on line till about 7 or 8ish and welcomed the notifications because those were the one's I'd replied to first or one's I was following. I was begining to think by not reply would infer I was ignoring posters responses.  

I've worked it out now , by pressing on zoomer and then postings it brings up what you've last posted. So I won't be leaving. It's an excellent forum.

Ditto to responding to postings.
