of the greenhouse interiors that were taken on the
2nd of February 2003.
We are having very cold weather, with both frosts and
snow here in the midlands. A lot of the plants are showing
the first signs of new green growth now and tiny little buds that herald new growth
are forming. I've mentioned this before, but good
advice always bears repeating. On every reasonable
warm day I spray all the older, more woody plants with tepid
water to soften the hard wood, this allows the pink buds to show through
the bark. When there are lots of new buds showing I will repot the plants
in new compost into pots of the same size.
Once again I'd like to
repeat some advice, this time I'd like to emphasize what I said about
watering in January, during the colder months of the year we need to be very
careful with the watering of all plants. We are aiming to keep them as dry
as possible without them getting dust dry. We must try not to get the
foliage wet while watering, as this can lead to mildew forming on the leaves
in the closed conditions of a greenhouse. The best and
safest way towater at
this time of year is to
stand the pots in a shallow dish of water for approximately ten minutes.
During this time they will take up all the water they need.
