NORTH LANARKSHIRE, Scotland
I recently bought some young plants from B&Q, they were perfectly healthy when i put them into my mini-greenhouse, but now thet are wilting and the leaves are turning yellow, recently i put in a small parafin heater to keep it frost free, my Question can the Parafin heater be causing the wilting of these plants,does the obvious fumes from the burning parafin harm the plants in any way? I have no ventillation in this small greenhouse, could that be it, and can i save the plants if i remove them, ??
UPDATE , the plants are Fuschias and petunias ( trailing ) i bought them for my baskets, i have been keeping an eye on the temp and it hasnt dropped below 40 degress at any time, tho im thinking the greenhouse isnt getting enough ventillation, i`ll try opening the door for a few hours during the day, i have move the plants to a cold frame with a tiny heater, just to combat the frost, i`ll keep an eye on them, hopefully they will recover
