At this time of year, the greenhouse is usually empty but this year, it’s full of seedlings from autumn sowings, cuttings and some tender plants over-wintering. Come and take a look.
For some people Erigeron (Mexican fleabane) grows like a weed but this my first successful sowing – yay! What I’ll do with 30 plug plants is another matter…
I sowed Chantilly Bronze antirrhinum in September, was ruthless with pinching out and now have these very sturdy little plants (48 of these!!)
Dianthus Kaleidoscope is coming along nicely too – just 15 of these
I’m overwintering a pelargonium and echeveria – both sale bargains and cutting material for next Spring. It’s a little disconcerting to see the pelargonium in flower.
The cutting I’ve shown you before: verbena bonariensis, penstemon and salvia Amistad, New to the team are these two hydrangea cuttings.
The springtime greenhouse shuffle is going to be interesting next year – I’ll keep you posted.
