My Year in pictures - June

Strong vegetative growth
June is a relatively quiet month, the plants are making strong vegetative growth and supplementary liquid feeding is given every five to seven days. I use several different liquid feeds depending on weather and plant condition - a balanced feed 1-0-1 (equal nitrogen and potash, no phosphates), a high nitrogen feed 3-0-1, and also a nitrogen only feed.

Depending on the weather, I remove the top two of glass from the sides of the greenhouse where the Chempak Rose family is being grown. I believe this helps air flow and slightly reduces the temperature in the greenhouse.

June allows time to get the plot tidy and just enjoy seeing the plants develop.
