This week in the greenhouse…

Welcome to our greenhouse…

This week we are keeping a close eye on the temperature we have many plants that have recently been potted on and are vulnerable to the frost if it gets too cold even the fleece will not protect them. For the majority of our crops we try not to use artificial methods in our growing processes meaning that our plants are acclimatised to British growing conditions. This is great for our customers as our plants are less likely to go into shock when exposed to our rather varied weather conditions!

You can almost hear the peonies shooting

Thousands of potted peonies are now shooting up, sending out their delicate looking red shoots. Now’s the time to give them a little water – too much and they won’t root well, too little and the new leaves will dry out the roots. I love this time of year!

But I can’t wait until they look like this in a few months!
