A Little Bit Brighter?

Monday was a little bit brighter than the weekend. The overnight rain cleared away and although we had a few showers through the day these didn't amount to an awful lot of rain. The sun almost managed to break through in the afternoon.

I did have a quick check on our plants over wintering in the greenhouse. Protected from the miserable damp conditions they’re doing fine in the greenhouse so far.
I checked to see if any of our collection needed a drop of water. They were a little bit on the dry side but I think that they’ll have a better chance of surviving a cold frosty snap if they’re kept on the dry side rather than a little too wet. Even in the greenhouse at this time of year plants don’t dry out very quickly so over watering is to be avoided if at all possible. I've fleece at the ready should any frost be forecast.
It might be my imagination but I don’t think it is but Sue’s had cyclamen in constant flower in the greenhouse since early spring. They’re still putting on an excellent display. Like the rest of the greenhouse plants these get watered with extreme care at this time of year.

  1. Cyclamen are fantastic little plants aren't they. I had one last year that flowered for months and months. I must go and look in the garden and see if it's doing anything now.
