Thanks Sheila, most of them are self seeded fr4om around the local reservoir, and "borrowed" by me, lol, I don't think they will miss a few, there are thousands, Derek.

Hi Sheila, don't be shy about asking, when I worked or the council, we would give anyone who asked, any of the plants we were ripping out, they only went to be composted, we took any cuttings we wanted before lifting them, at that time we used to take thousands of pelargonium cuttings and overwinter them, but I believe now they grow from seed every year, as it's more cost effective, after all, the worst they can say is no, Derek.

What a lovely workspace you have in your greenhouse Derek. What size did you choose please (I am about to order and am just not sure which size to go for), it looks a good size.

Hi Karen, it's a 12 x 8, but I have 4 courses of brick, as well as the aluminium base, so it's about 5 ft at the eaves, rising to about 9ft at the ridge, I hate greenhouses where you can only stand up in the middle, and it makes it look a lot bigger than it actually is.
Karen, you should always go for as big a greenhouse as you have room for, or you can afford, it's worth it in the end, Derek.

That's food for thought Derek. Thank you. :)
