    It was really mild here in Norfolk last night - I was seriously thinking of putting the summer duvet back on again image

    I didn't Alan - I just suffered with the heat! OH says it was like sleeping with a windmill! image

    I'm leaving my little greenhouse opened up for the next couple of days - if it gets really cold would you mind popping over and closing it up and bubble wrapping it - you could fleece the fig while you're at it ... if you don't mind image

    I only shut my cold GH if there's severe wind forecast

    Our summer duvet stays on all year round, and window open a crack, the greenhouse window stays open a crack as well. The other greenhouse has a piece of glass missing so always well ventilated.

    The big greenhouse (relatively speaking) has had no heating yet, and open doors when dry enough.  The little plastic seed tray one got blown over twice so we have taken it down and put the bits in the garage till the next growing season gets under way. 

  • Cold and frosty here this morning.

  • I've had two of those lightweight 'seedtray' shelters utterly destroyed: (plastic cover torn to shreds, frame sections 'disassembled') in recent gales. No, I'm not on a windy SW-facing clifftop - but slap in the middle of PD town; mid-terrace and as 'sheltered' as one could imagine!! Still, mustn't grumble! It's so mild here the question of GH heating doesn't arise. Best wishes for 2015/6 growing season to all forkers!!
