Ulf came to check on his plants for the Chelsea Flower Show this week. The herbaceous plants are just beginning to show but the recent cold weather means they are behind. And the forecast is not great for the next few weeks so we will have to monitor it closely in the build up to Chelsea. The plants are currently in a tunnel that is heated and therefore protected from the frost but I would have expected them to be more advanced than they are. Our plan B is to put them under grow lights but we only have a limited capacity for that so hopefully mother nature will come to our rescue.
