A Change in the Weather
Finally we are experiencing more seasonal temperatures for the time of year; it seems a long time since the last couple of frosts back in late November. I thought my greenhouse heater was going to blow up when I turned it on owing to the number of cobwebs draped over it! The roses, which just the other day were looking as though they were trying to flower, have begun to show signs of several nights of zero degrees.
The sweetpeas were bursting with enthusiasm and it has been like holding back a herd of charging elephants but hopefully they might now return to a slower pace ready for flowering in March. It’s always a worry when they leap into flower too early and then drop their buds. Never a dull moment in the world of growing.
