Peter Sourbutts Diary
2013
.

MAY
  
Well we had a few days of good weather, were has it gone now? I have taken the plunge and turned off the heat!  I have started to move my cutting tubers to the small greenhouse where I will pot them on into 2litre pots and at the end of the month I will put them outside to grow on throughout the summer, these will produce my tubers for next year.
   My show plants are doing well and all buds are being removed as they come. I have also coolglassed both greenhouses (just in case we get any sun)
   Over the past few days I have been out and about and the photos are of Terry Tasker's domain, Terry is a Bloom grower and he has an immaculate greenhouse. The other photos are of "Rushtons". Les runs a cash and carry and as you can see he has an awful lot of them lovely plants "Begonias" The other photos are of my greenhouse.
   Here's hoping for better growing weather.
