RE: Greenhouse Bubble insulation (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: cactusfreak on 10.02.2005 at 09:44 am in Greenhouses & Garden Structures Forum

I did a cost comparison per square feet comparing bubble wrap to the solar cover and the solar cover was cheaper.
The shipping bubble wrap is not the same as Charley's. Not as thick and not UV treated.
Another advantage of the solar pool cover is that it comes in a larger piece instead of strips much easier to put the whole thing on the outside instead of each strip between the channels inside the greenhouse.
The solar pool cover is a very thick material and made to stay out in the weather.
Be sure you get the Magni-clear cover and not the blue.
I leave mine on all winter til it gets really warm in the spring.
See 'My Page'
And Thank you Stressbaby. But I don't deserve all the credit. Someone else gave me the idea.

RE: short AUSTIN substitutes ??? (Follow-Up #26)

Fil Roses is actually in Belgium, not France. They told me that they graft on Laxa, which as far as I can tell has similar requirements as Multiflora. BUT - I really only found vague information and I'm sure that there are plenty of folk on this forum who are FAR more knowledgeable about rootstock than I!

My roses came at the end of November and as I'm not sure when they were sent I don't know how long they were in transit. But they arrived well-packed and still damp and in good shape. I potted them and sunk the pots in the ground and mounded them up for the winter. I have high hopes for spring!

On a side note, one of my roses was mislabelled. I emailed Fil pics of the tag and the rose and they were quick to respond, assuring me that it is indeed the rose I ordered (Pretty Sunrise) rather than the rose listed on the tag (Pretty Pink). I hope they're right - though Pretty Pink is nice too.

So far so good - time will tell.

Thonotorose the shipping I think was 30 dollars. Seemed like for 1 it was 15 and then after that it stayed 30. Curious as to the size of the roses. I will post a pic when I receive them.

I wanted to share some photos of my front garden. The first few pics are of florist roses that I had planted in spring of 2013. The next pics show how they've grown in 1 year.
