The start of this month has been a lot milder, with some sunshine during the day. As I have had to water a lot more, the feed has been changed to half strength. Epsom Salts have been added to help improve the colour of the foliage. The weather has warmed up a bit too much for my liking for the time of year. In trying to keep the temperature down in the greenhouses, I have removed the bubbles and painted white shading on the glass.
On plants that have a dark zone, like Clatterbridge & Birdbush Chloe, the leaves will soon go red in the sudden rise in temperature. When this happens it is best to remove them as they will only get worse, and new ones will come in their place by 'Show Day'.
Not had much of a chance to get on here this month, been so busy watering, making up baskets and sorting the Hosta collection.
