    Half hardy and tender plants in their winter quarters

    Half hardy and tender plants in their winter quarters

    I spent a couple of useful hours giving my overwintering plants a bit of much needed tlc.  Given how dreadful the weather has been, most of the refugees in my unheated conservatory seem to be in reasonable shape, although I’m not sure that my cherry guava will summon the energy to grow a new set of leaves.  In general though my regime of benign neglect seems to pay off – I gave each plant a light water, swept up all the dead leaves and will leave them alone until the end of February.  I’ve found that they survive being very dry far better than when they are damp.
