Greenhouse job checklist

30 - 6 July 2014

It's time to...

  • Take cuttings of zonal and regal pelargoniums, and pot up rooted cuttings taken earlier
  • Train the main stem of cucumber plants up a wire to the roof of your greenhouse. Pinch out sideshoots two leaves after a flower or fruit
  • Water plants in pots and grow bags with tepid water, if possible. Try leaving a few full cans of water in the greenhouse to warm up
  • Send off for biological pest controls for whitefly and red spider mite
  • Propagate lilies from bulb scales, digging bulbs from the garden to remove a few healthy scales, then replanting again. Small bulblets will form at the base of each scale within a few weeks
