I took these photos on the 21st of February
2002 and it was a sunny day for a change. We've been having a lot of
gloomy, grey days over here in the UK and it made a nice change to enjoy
some sunshine. In this first picture, taken from the bottom of the garden,
the plants can be seen through the glass. Though it looks like there are
plenty of plants in there, I've unfortunately lost a lot of plants this
winter. I went away for a month over Christmas and New Year and some of
them were over-watered in my absence. This year I will need to take plenty
of cuttings to replenish my stock
This second photo was take from close to the
house and is another view of the greenhouse which shows that the plants in
there are still doing well. There are a lot of new, pink buds appearing on
them now the days are getting longer, these herald this years growth. From
now on I will lightly spray the old wood with tepid water, this fools the
plants into thinking that spring has arrived and also softens the bark.
After a few days of doing this, the plants will begin to show more buds.
When this new growth is obvious I will remove some soil from the rootballs
and move them into new potting compost.
