Greenhouse checklist

7 - 13 December 2015

It's time to...

  • Keep potted herbs on the staging to crop over winter
  • Move potted bulbs into the greenhouse to develop before bringing into the house
  • Clear out old crops and growing bags
  • Water sparingly and aim to keep the atmosphere as dry as possible over winter to reduce the spread of disease
  • Check dahlia tubers and bulbs in store for signs of rot
  • Pick off fading or diseased leaves from pelargoniums and other plants
  • Continue ventilating the greenhouse on warm days
  • Cut down chrysanthemums after flowering
  • Prune dormant vines
