The colder than average and cloudy skies continue into mid May. What do you do with your plants when it is so crummy outside? Some are fortunate to own a small greenhouse to hold them until they can be put in their rightful places, but others endure the hardship of moving them in and out of the garage each day. This is Wisconsin and it is mid month May. Only one time in the last thirty years has last frost been during the first week of May at the greenhouse location and more times than I can remember, it has been the first week of June. Bear with the cool weather conditions, provide plenty of air circulation for your plants, keep them on the drier rather than wetter side or they will dampen off (do not let cape daisies dry out too much), and before you know it, your plants will be basking in the warmth of summer where they will be enjoyed for months to come.
SFA Greenhouse will attempt to maintain this blog and keep everyone up to date with activities in the greenhouse.
