CHRYSANTHEMUMS

Welcome to my 2021 Catalogue.

Well what a year that has been? COVID19 changed the way we all live and think. We grew flowers not knowing whether shows would go ahead or not.  The weather was kind to us during lockdown but probably a challenge for the growing of flowers.  Unfortunately due to covid and the rise in costs to me I have no option but to slightly raise the costs in my catalogue, and so for this I am sorry.

At least we have managed to have a couple of shows in the North East, which has attracted exhibitors from as far as Scotland.  Quality was really good considering the conditions we have endured.

This year I have also grown and shown large onions with which I have been very successful.

Therefore I am selling onion seed.  Purchasing details are below.

Good Growing

We now have a new system for ordering hopefully this will make it much easier and resolve most if not all problems.

CULTURAL NOTES

Cuttings are best taken from January to March, depending on the variety.  Cuttings taken from basal growth produce the best cuttings.  It will take up to three weeks for the cuttings to root.  Once rooted pot them into a 31/2 " pot and use John Innes No1 compost.

Always be careful with the water at this stage, remember only water when needed.  Good indicator is when the plant is wilting on a morning, not on an afternoon.

Stop your plants at the correct time as per the guide in my catalogue.  After about 4 weeks pot the plant on, into a 5 inch pot.  At this stage keep an eye on them for pests and diseases.  Spray with a good fungicide and pesticide on a two week basis.  Again at this time be careful with the watering.

Prepare your ground with good fertiliser and plant the early flowering chrysanthemums into the open ground in May.  With late flowering chrysanthemums transfer into their final pots in June.  Grow your plants 2 up and tie each break to a cane.  This is the time to keep an eye out for white rust.  Start to give them a light feed, slightly high in Nitrogen.  When caylx shows signs of splitting bag the intermediates and incurves but let the reflexes come naturally.

The downloadable order form is a pdf file, you may need Adobe reader

SHOW ONIONS

I have been growing onions seriously for a few years now and have had great success with them in 2019 winning shows with bulbs of 13lb + .

This year I won the Benedict Open Show in Northumberland again with 13lb+ onions and recently Blackhall Welfare Open Show with 131/2 lb

So I am now selling my heavy strain of onion seeds for £10.00 a packet which contains approx. 50 viable seeds.

(I am selling these direct so please email or phone me to order.)
