Tender plants

Posted on


This week has shown just how quickly the weather can change. During the week it has been warm and sunny, up to 17C and then an abrupt change to much colder weather with a very chilly wind.

What does this mean for gardeners?

Often we get caught out as it's not only frost which causes damage to tender young spring plants the chill wind does as well. Very tender veggies, like French beans have a tendency to shrivel in the cold and the new Ipomoea seedlings have withered in the greenhouse where they caught a draft and caught the Sunday Gardener off guard. Its hard to keep an eye on everything but sudden changes in weather are always a problem.

Still, should be OK to sow early seed potatoes and for more on growing Potatoes following the link.
