I’ve put my Mothers to bed!

Mothers in the greenhouse.

Most of my mother plants (auriculas) have now been placed on the floor of the unheated greenhouse. They will remain there until next spring; I will check them occasionally to see that they are well ventilated and dry. At this time of year I keep them just barely moist. The other mother plants and divisions are kept in my 10 cold frames; again  I will keep an eye on them so that they too are well ventilated and kept quite dry.
The winter temperatures of down to minus 27°c are no problem as long as they are kept dry.
