Your au­tumn-win­ter green­house plan

Gardeners' World - - Greenhouse Growing -

Store har­vested onions in racks or hang­ing from the roof.

Over­win­ter dahlia tu­bers in trays of barely damp com­post or sand.

Sow let­tuces in the soil bor­der – be sure to choose a win­ter or all-sea­sons va­ri­ety.

Over­win­ter pe­largo­nium and fuch­sia stock plants as well as cut­tings, which can be taken as late as Septem­ber and kept in trays or small pots un­til they are pot­ted up into larger con­tain­ers in spring.

Bring pot­ted ner­ines that have spent the sum­mer dor­mant, un­der cover to flower in au­tumn.

Force daf­fodils such as pa­per­white and ‘Grand Soleil d’Or’ – they can be pot­ted up and brought on for Christ­mas.

Don’t make the green­house a dump­ing ground. Store pots and other things in the shed – plants be­long in a green­house.
