Work on my plants!


I have now added a couple of photos to my collection of pictures, one of my Begonias in their final pots but before i started work on them. The other is of some of my plants after i measured the buds and tied them to the canes, also the buds have been lifted above the leaves. I will need to go through the plants a few times before the show to dress them for the show and keep the buds / blooms (when they open) above the leaves. With the buds above the leaves the sunlight should get to them more to help them to open up, as well as being able to see the blooms better when they open. By lifting them above the leaves before the blooms open i will be less likely to damage the blooms when they have opened trying to move them. Fingers crossed that they make good show plants!
