The weather this week has been dry and sunny. The first of the outside daffs are in bloom. ( Surfside )
The pots that were farthest forward and we replaced in the shade of the glasshouse are slowly coming into bloom and will remain there meantime.
In the glasshouse the pots have still not been watered for more than a week and yet the flower buds on many are well advanced. I will continue to withhold their water.
The Hyacinths are well greened now and the flower-buds are starting to swell. Given some heat and sun they will start to elongate and the skill now is to get the flower spike completely out and in full bloom for the show.
Tahiti, Bravoure and Camelot are growing on slowly and just need a bit of sunshine and heat to give them a growth spurt. I may have to try and straighten up the pot of Tahiti soon so that it can be presented s a pot exhibit rather than just for cut flower.
There are only 5 weeks until the Spring Show so some artificial stimulation may be required soon
