  1. well all is good now! i bought the heater from "Keengardener" it had a 3 year warranty, so with one email i was able to have a new replacement heater & my old one picked up Hows that for service!! And their prices are very good too! i cant recommend them enough
  2. As you can see i made an earlier post about my heater which failed at my hour of need! i couldnt find a quick remedy , so contacted "Keengardener" ( the people i bought it from) without hesitation they arranged for a replacement to be delivered & my old unit picked up ( my biogreen black forest heater has 3year warranty) Not only are "Keengardener" the cheapest seller of this product They also offer a fantastic after sales service I totally recommend them Big smiley face!
  3. Thanx guys! its one of those expensive ones!!! (Black forest 3.5kw) with a built in thermostat The good thing is with the "expensive" ones they come with a free warranty for 3years!! so my supplier "Keengardener" is arranging a pick-up & replacement (Good service& the cheapest supplier of this model) I was just wondering if anyone had a quick remedy OLIVER-- i managed to get a cheap electric one (£15 in Robert Dyass) not as economical to run as the gas, but a least my plants are ok And i can use the fan during summer
  4. my biogreen propane heater didnt "kick in last nite!! anybody had this problem , the pilot light works but no heat is given off anyone know of a "kwik fix"??? Thanx

  16. ive done this too! Last years cuttings are a good size now I also tried something different with some plants that i have "too many" of..... i used them as "cut flowers" in a pot, they all flowered, gave a great display.... and now im harvesting seed from the cuttings!!! they may still make "plantlets" at the cut end, time will tell!

    The flower on this "bannana" opened around Xmas Ad its a "terminal" flower i expected lots of "pups" to replace the main stem I wasnt expecting " fruit" nor one of the pups producing a flower already! snaps 1620 by elvis g, on Flickr snaps 1619 by elvis g, on Flickr snaps 1618 by elvis g, on Flickr
  20. I was one of the Lucky few who attended Les,s open day yesterday Aside from nearly being "roasted alive" in his greenhouse it was ,again, a great day LES grows alot of plants from seed & always has 100s of seedlings for sale at ridiculously low prices ( inm sure the pot & label are worth more than his asking price!!) As usual Les was selling lots of divisions from his "Top-shelf" plants A twin crown "Goldie" was on offer for £20!!!!! As space is an issue for Les (as it is for us all) he also had a round 20 mature plants, which he was GIVING AWAY!! FREE!!! ( THAT INCLUDED THE EXPENSIVE POTS & TAGS!!!) There were plants on sale from some of the attendees too & M.King also arrived with a tray full of "Good stuff!!" Despite all of the above, less than 10 people visited!!! Maybe its "the wrong time of month" with skool holidays just starting, but this really is an open day to Go to heres a few pics, snaps 1529 by elvis g, on Flickr seedlings on sale snaps 1531 by elvis g, on Flickr snaps 1533 by elvis g, on Flickr Crimson Queen (star of the day for me!) snaps 1534 by elvis g, on Flickr snaps 1532 by elvis g, on Flickr Note how clean this greenhouse is! snaps 1530 by elvis g, on Flickr snaps 1528 by elvis g, on Flickr PART!! of the "new" Dionaea "addiction" MAYBE you,ll not MISS OUT next year!
