I am probably having a 'blonde' moment here (apologies to all blonde people) but is it ok to use a sulphur candle in a wooden greenhouse?  :(
I have used them in aluminium greenhouses for years, however there is something in my head that says I should be using a different sort of fumigating agent.
Advice most welcome, thanks.
I have my own cement mixer and not afraid to use it!!

Yes, it's ok  ;) Just not so close to the frame that it could catch light, obviously  :D

Thanks for the heads up CQ. I will have to think of where else I can get them.

I've seen them in B'n'Q and they are still listed on their website - doesn't mean they've got them in your local one but it's a start.  :)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

That was my next port of call actually.  Is it the right time to do it now though, or do we wait til the spring?

I don't use them because until it seems like a bad idea I just scrub down with diluted Jeyes, but if I did I'd wait 'till spring so that anything not killed by frost might be just waking up thinking how lucky they'd been..........  ;)
