My Way - by Derek L Telford

.New Season  - February to Early May

.

Over wintered non-tuberous leaf cuttings (taken in October) under bench in polystyrene fish box and then potted on the following spring.
The greenhouse has only been kept at 38.F

.

Late February
This is a cutting tuber which was not harvested in a 4" pot and it was immediately started up when the tops fell off.

.

Early April.
Started tubers potted up and transferred to one of my three allotment's  greenhouses.  This is heated with a Propane heater and this part is sectioned off.

.

My potting on compost is 50/50 Singleton's J.I No 2 and B&Q soilless compost.

I utilise my space to a MAXIMUM - hanging baskets too!

.

Centre greenhouse with partition removed and plants potted into 3 litre pots.  This is the reason for shading, I do not want leaf scorch.

Plants in 6" pots in early May.

.

Plants in side extension fitted with 6 hand operated home-made polycarbonate windows.
All benches in this greenhouse are fitted with slatted cedar benches.
