    Default Repot & re-organise of Orchid House

    I decided it was time to start repotting. It looks more like a career than a task. 2 or 3 days should see it all done.
    The pics so far.

    Thanks Jan. Organised & clean now, you should have seen it before I cleaned up !!! Somehow I tend to create a "good" mess. Nothing by halves.

    Hi Roy, That is simply impressive, I would not call it a greenhouse, rather WAREHOUSE, great job.

    The best house keeping is in the GH. Home is clean but lived in. Can't find anything if I do too much.
    The GH is approx' 9mtrs x 4mtrs x 3.5mtrs high at gable.

    Thanks for kind words. I can't stand a disorganised growing area. Plants need space & all pot sizes together where possible. Allows for more watering of smaller pots easier without overwatering larger pots. I can see each plant better to check on any problems that occur.
    All I need now is for the plants to co-operate & flower !!!!
