Growing Begonias My way
Hi everyone it is time
for a little more input from yours truly. It was nice to meet up
with some of you guys at our AGM, again it was good to hear that the
society is doing well and going from strength to strength. We are I
am sure thankful to our committee for all the work they put in in
keeping it so The balance sheet was pleasant reading and I feel
moving our national show to Shrewsbury has been a big factor in that
The last time I wrote I was telling you about cleaning things ready for
the start of the season, well I think I have got most things ready
now, I have wire woolled all of my supports a time consuming and
finger aching job and then oiling each of them too.
I must let you know a little about my other passion Chrysanthemum like my begonias they too have got off to a great start, rooted well good healthy foliage and I have 260 potted up into three and half inch pots, just another 35 to do this coming weekend.
Back to Begonias I
have started potting up into various size pots 11cm 13cm 2ltr 3ltr
5ltr and one 10ltr all of which had good roots, lovely jubbly. I
think by this coming weekend I should have got most of my Multistems
potted up so I am where I wanted to be this year, just ahead of
previous years, I am chuffed.
Well thatís all from me for now, hope all things go okay with season.
Tata for now Ron.
