Growing Guide – September


Jobs To Be Getting On With

This month can be of mixed fortune, bringing a mix of warm and colder weather and you will need to control the temperature inside your greenhouse carefully as a result. Cooler temperatures will also reduce the need to damp down.

Plant growth also becomes less active as temperatures fall and compost stays moister for longer; you can therefore reduce the frequency with which you water. Keep watch for fungal diseases however, as they tend to appear this month.

A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.
