  • And here it is!!



  • No. it's not heated. but if it was going to be a cold night i would take them into the house and put them back out in the morning. And the light I have is 120w from lightwave. I've put it in a old wardrobe in my bedroom. And the compost is 100% peat moss from Lidle it cost £2 per 35L. The thing that was the most expensive was the wooden planks for the polytunnel, they were £4 per 10 foot. But they are pressure treated and should last a while.

    No frost forecast for here next week - lowest temperature at night predicted is 5 degrees.  But I will probably wait till the end of the month before sticking the tomatoes in the greenhouse, except for my trial ones, which are already there and seem to be doing okay.  Foliage gone a bit red - guess that's just their way of hardening up - first leaves going a bit white, but generally bushy and healthy looking.  Don't really mind if I lose them cos I've got too many to cope with anyway.

    Rusty how old r your figs they look great r they from your own cuttings ,if so which way did you do them,iv doing about 25 at the moment in 4 different ways so  im interested how you do them Alan

  • No sorry, I bought them from B&Q last year, they were on offer £2 each. so I bought as many as I could fit into the car. I also bought some grape vines for £2, they all just looked like little sticks in pots. But I make my own hydroponic chemicals and it's like magic tonic, It seems to make everything flourish.

    Gosh Rusty - you would have had a field day at the local GC here then today - lots of stuff to re-invigorate!!  All this talk of trusses and mini tomatoes made me take a closer look at the triffids this afternoon, and sure enough....image  Reckon we will have flowers soon.  Oops.

    Better to start a new thread with your query darenfisher. That way, you'll get more specific help  :)
    This is a very old thread, and most of the people are no longer posting.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
