Greenhouse job checklist

10 - 16 February 2014

It's time to...

  • Hand pollinate the flowers of peaches and nectarine, with a soft brush
  • Cut off hippeastrum flower heads, leaving the stalk
  • Sow summer-bedding plants in trays in a heated propagator or in the greenhouse
  • Plant dahlia tubers in trays to encourage shoots to develop, which you can use as cuttings
  • Pot on houseplants and ferns into slightly larger pots
  • Insulate the greenhouse with polythene to improve insulation and seal windows
