Tidy Greenhouse – Tidy Mind ??!!!

2 Dec

Just because the weather is cold, damp and gloomy, doesn’t mean that you can’t find a satisfying job in the garden.

Yesterday was a perfect day for tidying out the greenhouse and potting shed – several degrees warmer and out of the chilling wind !




By the end of summer my greenhouse has become a real dumping ground for empty pots, dead plants,and  half full bags of charcoal. And as for the spiders webs !! I don’t know where they all come from but the windows are practically opaque with them !

With nights getting colder I need to make space for all my tender scented geraniums. To keep the frost off I use a small electric blow heater on a frost thermostat that keeps it just above freezing and if there is a prolonged period of cold I throw a duvet of horticultural fleece over everything. 

So on a nice dry day I drag everything out and sort through the rubbish, wash the empty pots, clean the windows and hoover the spiderswebs – yes I think I spend more time hoovering the greenhouse than my own house !



The potting shed also has had a bit of a makeover , with new hanging for all the tools and new wine boxes hung on their sides to provide mini shelves. Its so satisfying to use your tools when they’re all neatly arranged !
