Flooring for GreenhouseFlooring for Greenhouse
By Eric4home, April 16, 2014

We poured a concrete floor for our structure. After leveling the space by digging down a bit, we put up 8" forms. For the next step we put down recycled 3" closed-cell foam and covered it with poly. We left the center open for drainage and brick so we could access the power and water if repairs are needed. The pipe next to the shovel is the hydrant.The floor tilts to center 1"/3' to keep water from freezing the walls loose from the base.

By chickhill on Apr 18, 2014 7:50 PM, concerning plant: Aibika (Abelmoschus manihot)

I have this growing from seed every year. I have read many different articles about this plant, but I haven't found anything about how bad the "fine looking hairs" will stick into your skin. I use leather gloves when cutting the plants down in fall. Anyone else grow this? Then again, I hope I haven't added this comment to the wrong plant.

By chelle on Apr 18, 2014 6:51 AM, concerning plant: Climbing penstemon (Keckiella cordifolia)

Climbing penstemon (Keckiella cordifolia) seedlings are quite cold hardy and adaptable to wide temperature fluctuations. Seedlings transplanted outdoors under high cover have survived and show every sign of continuing to prosper; this batch having been started warm indoors, and then directly exposed to the following:

Day 1, 69°F / 32°F
Day 2, 33°F / 24°F
Day 3, 46°F / 23°F
Day 4, 66°F / 32°F

By Esc on Apr 17, 2014 2:26 PM, concerning plant: Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Cassie's Curls')

I have a brugmansia. Cassie's curls. Angel's trumpet. I live in San Antonio. My yard faces west-south-west. A big oak tree blocks late afternoon sun. I am looking for advice on where to plant this. In a container? Hanging basket? My gardens are full and really don't have room. The plant arrived in the mail after our perennials came back and we added new so we're pretty full. Would appreciate any suggestions. I'm inexperienced with this plant. Thanks.

By Bonehead on Apr 16, 2014 9:07 PM, concerning plant: Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides)

This is not my favorite tree, simply because it looks dead in the winter when I would like more of a lively presence. It's very beautiful when it first greens up, kind of a soft look to it, and is also nice in fall when it turns. Grows fairly quickly.

By HamiltonSquare on Apr 16, 2014 8:44 PM, concerning plant: Blue Sage (Salvia reflexa)

I think that Salvia lanceolata is NOT a synonym of Salvia reflexa. There is a photo of one Savia reflexa with a blue flower and the rest with the pinkish flower and bracts are Salvia lanceolata in the ATP database. I'm growing the one with the showy rusty pink bracts and flowers. We have it listed as Salvia lanceolata and i was about to change it to reflexa............ Any Salvia experts in the ranks of ATP?
