This Crestwood is a month early this year so this should be flowering January instead of Feb.

I take it that's the man eater from your greenhouse.

Had no idea they were even capable of growing to that sort of size.

Between you and David I'm seriously thinking of giving up trying to grow plants and taking up something else.

Hello Ed
I ahve a few plants that are ahead of their flowering time , but I am more concerned about the high night temperatures aborting buds on my cymbidiums.I have seen daffodils in full flower and snowdrops now in bloom although in small quantities.Two days before christmas I came across aconites opening (which should be after snowdrops) so it is atrue learning curve this year.

The only thing it takes to grow an orchid to a decent size is time and patience ------ and I'm sure you've got more time than me!!!!!!

Hi Ed

I think sometimes we complain that our plants are not flowering when in fact the main problem is the fact we are expecting them to flower before they are mature. At orchid shows the plants which are flowering well and winning rosettes tend to be big and mature.
