Now to catch up!


Last year i found i was short of space to putt the cuttings i had taken. I found a small 4 foot deep by 6 foot wide greenhouse at a local garden centre, i had ordered and had it delivered a while ago but the person i had asked to lay some slabs and put it up only came the other day, and came back and finished off yesterday. My other greenhouses are cedar wood, but this one is metal which i don’t like as much as the wooden ones but was a lot less expensive and is out of the way the other side of the main greenhouse. This greenhouse is planned for just cuttings, and being smaller when i keep the cuttings going longer next back end it should take less electricity.
Now i shall have to contact an electrician to put some electric into this greenhouse.
With all this going on i am starting to get a bit behind with getting ready to start this season, i shall have to get on and catch up to make sure that the tubers are started on the correct date, even if i have to leave some of the cleaning up until after they have been started.

I can see why you're busy Mark :o) I just took a quick look at all the reminders you've got for your begonias - looks like growing for shows needs a lot of preparation and organisation!!

It's surprising how quickly it becomes time to start again, it seems to creep up and suddenly it's time to do everything. Next time i really must do more of the cleaning during the winter, although i can't start until the plants are down and out of the way.
Now i think that i'll leave the slower varieties until the later shows, as i haven't got a lot of those anyway.
