Cape Daisy

Postby Gerry » Tue Apr 09, 2019 1:30 pm

I have two cell trays of Venidium Orange Prince seedlings, in my unheated greenhouse, and they now have flower buds on them.
I don't intend planting them out until all risk of frost has passed.

My question is...Would you remove flower buds or leave them on?

Regards,
Gerry.

You will get slightly stronger plants if you remove the flower buds, Gerry, or just enjoy the flowers in the greenhouse for a while.....or do a tray of each way.... :)
