Howdy folks ….!!!!

As you know, my season started on Halloween night when I made my first sowings…..not a lot has really happened between then and now, except for lovingly caring for, and feeding my young plants. Apart from the fact that I lost a full tray of seedlings over Christmas !!! Other things going on, and I forgot to water them under the lights…. a harsh lesson 😦

The plants that I overwintered, have survived and are growing well.

However, this time of year is when I really start getting a buzz, because its time for the plants to go into the greenhouses !! πŸ™‚

So all the Hydro equipment has been fetched out of storage, and set up…


Also set up is a 4-pot Wilma and 3 Quadgrows

And the plants placed in them, I have a heater on hand….just in case of any late frosts !

The remaining plants have been potted into their final pots, and put in the large greenhouse.

Here’s a few pics… I’m not much of a photrographer, but I do my best πŸ˜‰
I might have to think about starting a bit later for next season, the plants were ready to go out well before the weather was ready….and as a result a lot of the lower leaves fell off, but all new growth is fine πŸ™‚

These 4 plants are overwintered

Hopefully, I’ll be able to keep on top of things now, and be able to update on a regular basis….including more pics, if there’s anything you would like to ask about my plants or growing methods etc, then please get in touch.

Happy growing !!!

  1. I’m in awe, so starting my next season early. Do you have a lot of heating equipment for starting them in october?

  2. Hi Amy…no heating at all, once the seedlings sprout they go under lights which give off a certain amount of heat. However because they’re raised indoors there is no need for extra heating.

  3. Everything is coming along trumps, mate!! πŸ˜€
