This had to be the coldest start to this month for ages, with freezing temperatures and more snow. All one can do is keep plants frost free and hope things improve soon. I moved the Angels to the warmest parts of the greenhouses, as I have lost two nice plants which were against the glass.
Never have I seen so many yellow leaves as this year, (Has anyone else had this problem?) When removing them I also take off any big leaves from Miniatures and Dwarfs, as they are not in keeping with the size of the plant.
Where does the time go, week 7 which is 18 weeks to the National Show. I have found that the older the plant the longer it takes for them to come into flower. So this week I made final stops on a few Regals, will do a few more next week. Getting Regals to flower at the right time is not that easy as a lot depends on the weather.
