February in the Garden
Featured in the February 2017 handbook.
Soft tip cuttings can be taken from fuchsias this month.
If you do have any seedlings and/or cuttings in the greenhouse, make sure they are getting the maximum light available, or else they will become weak and leggy. If necessary, turn them once a day so that they get light on both sides. This will stop them leaning over towards the light, and keep them upright and compact.
Donít forget to prick out seedlings before they get too crowded, and then to pot them on as individual plants as soon as they are large enough.
Plug plants are now available for sale. They can be grown on in your glasshouse, being a relatively cheap source of large numbers of plants, while avoiding the need for propagation facilities.
