    I mist all the hanging plants daily ( more or less) and take them down , one-by-one, for inspection and dunking at longer intervals. In the summer I would like to do everything that way once a week, but it usually ends up longer , and at the present time it gets to be 2 or 3 weeks between these proper soakings.
    No I don't actually live in the greenhouse, but I do enjoy spending a couple of hours a day - on the average - working on my plants. Also, pretty well everything on the centre benches ( some 6 feet wide x 30 ft long) are in S/H, with minimum time demands.
    It should be remembered that I am an old man, with (notionally) all the time in the world and I have always been a workaholic,and since I still rise at 5.45 - and am active most of the day until I sit down to join my wife watching tv for an hour before I usually drop off watching the 10 o'clock news - that is a lot of time to fill !
    My best regards to you Bruce - I do enjoy my time in the forums .

    Many thanks Geoff for your feedback on my q's. Sometimes its just easier to ask than spend time researching hits on a search engine with no end of dead ends! Appreciate it!
