Attention greenhouse hobbyists: with fall approaching it is a perfect time to begin drying coffee grounds to be used as fertilizer over winter. You can utilize your greenhouse benches while there is still space or simply lay out a sheet of newspaper  and spread your coffee grounds on it to dry. Once they are dry you can either store them in a container to use later or spread them around your acid loving plants such as roses, azaleas or rhododendron. A ½ cup of dried coffee ground is good for about a 3 foot plant.

Classically designed English conservatories are the epitome of style and tradition. Conservatories are common in England, but are typically made of wood due to England’s mild climate. Wooden English conservatories require finish maintenance and can suffer termite damage depending on the location.
