    • Broom & Dogwood gone mad this is one seasons growth from small plants, I will have to move them .

    • That’s fascinating Frank, and don’t forget the odd seasonal differences most of us have had too :good: Nevertheless, your garden planting has been fabulous :good: :rose:

    • I do like that combination offluffy bright yellow and spiky green though…pity it grew too big for you :disappointed: :rose:

    • As you can see on here Anne the Hydrangea paniculata fits in fine as this can be cut back each year so no problem and also the Choisya stays compact so I will have to choose more carefully next time,ie take a list instead of just picking up what I fancy, roll on spring

    • I second that last comment :lol: :good: :rose:

    • I have had a sort out and removed dogwood and broom, I am having to get used to small garden and also plants growing twice as fast and big compared to my old garden. This one is much more sheltered I can`t believe the difference. I am going to have to think about what will be best here.

  • Hi Sheila,I have a home made propagator with a heating cable under sand which is in the greenhouse which I use to start off seeds and cuttings etc. Following on from germination I have to move the seedlings onto the greenhouse bench so I have to put some heat in the greenhouse which is why I insulate. I also use the alliplugs which as you say are…[Read more]

  • Thanks Mick, do just cover up with bubble wrap and fleece or do you fix it to the framework?also do you have any heat on?.

  • Does anyone have any thoughts on greenhouse insulation? I have always fixed the large bubble wrap on extended fixings to leave a gap from the glass, which has always done a good job.However last year which was a very dull winter with low levels of light I had not much success in setting off seeds in my heated propagator in particular with begonias…[Read more]

  • Yes if you go to your local builders merchant or even B&Q or Wickes any of these should be able to help you.What you are looking for is a straight down pipe connector I would advise taking one of the lengths of pipe with you for correct sizing this will fit inside the bottom length and over the top length.

  • Thanks Walt,as I said above I will make sure next year that they are Scottish seed, I have looked on JBA website in the past but with only needing a few seeds to grow in bags and airpots I usually get them locally.I think our local horticultural society will use Scottish seed, but I shall enquire.

  • Hi Allan Many thanks for that information, I never use pots that I have grown either. I usually buy my setts at the local horticultural society shop, but this year I was at one of the local G/C and I bought a small pack from there.I have no idea wether or not they were Scottish seed I thought all seed were Scottish that we get round here (shows…[Read more]

  • Yes it does appear to depend on which variety you use, I will have to think about this for next year. Although I do like Desiree
    :confused:

  • Thank you Walt I wasn`t aware of that, I was wondering if I had gone over the top with feeding etc. with mixing concentrated farmyard manure in the base mix, but if the cause is the weather last summer I may have to go back to Picasso next year but I just fancied Desiree for a change.

  • This year I have grown Desiree in air pots and they have produced a good crop of good sized potatoes, unfortunatly quite a lot of them have a lot of scab. I used multipurpose compost with some Levington concentrated farmyard manure mixed in the bottom layer then topped up with the multipurpose with a bit of fertiliser mixed in. Watered as normal…[Read more]

  • I have been emptying the summer bedding pots and saving the geraniums to the greenhouse I didn`t realise how many I had planted. Some have grown massive I am thinking now I will have a go at taking some cuttings and maybe dispose of the original plants, I am not sure if this is the way to go, is this the recommended method ? my neighbour does…[Read more]

    I have just tried to upload one now Allan, it goes through all the motions, puts the thumbnail up the green bar moves across it jumps as if uploading then nothing :confused:

  • Frank AKA seasider posted an update 7 months ago

    Allan, no my camera is quite old the same one I have taken all the pictures on here with.
    They are all similar pixels about 5 to 5.5 million.

    Hi Walt & Allan Thank you for your comments, I don`t know if you read my response last night as I was having all sorts of problems trying to upload pics and even comments, these are two old pics I was using to see if my latest files had a fault, they went on ok but I still was unable to upload any more, then I couldn`t upload comments so I called…[Read more]

    Good afternoon all, everything appears to have settled down on the site now. last night I couldn`t post a comment. I still can`t get pictures to upload though, I will try on the wife’s laptop just to see if it is a problem with my pc

    I just tried to answer Walts comment underneath his but that wont load either so I will try again tomorrow but the one to B/S went on :confused:

  • Frank AKA seasider posted a new activity comment 7 months ago

    Hi B/S am having a lot of trouble uploading my recent photos so these last 2 are old photos from 2012 and these uploaded without any problem. Sorry for any confusion but yes I built these walls on my last house and many more and the toms are old photos. I was trying to find out why I can upload some pictures but not many and none of my latest.…[Read more]

    • Are you going to try to crop these through the end of the year with lighting, Frank? Be interested to hear how you get on.

    • See my comment above Frank.

    • Frank,If you took them with a new camera,There might be too many megapixels on them,The program will time out before it can copy them, If I try putting a picture on that is 12 million pixels,It won’t upload, So I reduce them to upload,I am guessing that is right ,but ask Karen to make sure, ;-)
