  1. Hi All My friend has some pots around the pond edge but the blackbirds keep on pecking out the compost looking for insects etc she has asked me can you put gravel around the top of the plants ? to stop the birds ? also which type is best ? and how deep ? RR
  2. Hi what make is the greenhouse as some are stronger than others same with the glass as well depends on the thickness , also the main point for me would be where you site it ie gets blasted by the wind or is it protected by a hedge which helps slow the wind down, fences and walls just help speed it up. Exiting getting a greenhouse just opens up a totally new world of gardening RR
  3. Hi Tizzy new myself so see you around RR
  4. thank you I already have a couple of sarracenia from him one being "Joyce cooper" also arrived already in pots so well established his new book look good as well I am tempted

  6. Hi All, Ok with growing Sarracenia , and would now like to grow some Sundews sorry if it been asked on here before tips etc would be useful , are they easy from seed or best to start of with plants, and who sells a good range, would be useful. RR
  7. Hi Welshy Will have another read through , its just awesome with what you have done, the stone floor to capture the heat is very clever How has the greenhouse stood up to the weather would be useful to know as planing to get a new one later in the Autumn when they have the sales but I grow all sorts , and does a tomato plant sneak in over the summer months RR

    Hi Guys

    Quick intro I grow Sarracenia I have about 15 now so a mini collection most have a name ( hopefully the correct one ) and a couple of seedlings from a nursery in France that came free with a plant I bought , all are kept in my cold greenhouse, windows open 12 months of the year ... I think that helps to keep them healthy , I did have a problem with vine weevils a couple of years ago which I found in the compost when splinting them in the spring, amazed me how tough they are I washed all the roots and re potted them in fresh compost all looks ok now as I was growing fuchsias at the same time and they had them as well !!! Looking forward to having a good nose about RR
