Home made Coldframes inside polytunnel

coldframes made from blocks left over from a building project and lids are the sides of an old shower cubicle! Only enough room left for a couple of trays of pelargonium cuttings

Great idea.

Just the job Wendy. Great recycling too. A darned sight cheaper than shop bought ones. You've got loads of cuttings going, I hope they all come through the winter for you.

Yes been very busy sowing seeds and growing from cuttings. In the coldframes, amongst others are 20 rooted cuttings of penstemons - insurance against a hard winter (2 of Czar from Steragram). Fuchsias (supposed to be hardy) and Zantedechsia destined for my ponds next year. Thought I had plenty of room but running out of space!

You never have enough space for plants do you? I've never had much joy from cuttings I have taken of Penstemons. I think I've managed just 2 from loads I've tried. :o(

What a good idea, I love anything that makes use of things that would just get thrown away. Smashing!
