Growing Plants in Your Conservatory Garden – More Tips!

For homes with a conservatory used as a greenhouse, there are various factors to consider in making an optimal environment for your plants. In Growing Plants in Your Conservatory Garden, we gave tips on which plants are best to grow in a conservatory, and how much light and water these plants need.

 

 

Today we’re sharing tips about temperature control, repotting, pruning, and pest control as listed by House of Plants:

 

Temperature - High temperatures cause stress on plants and necessitate frequent watering, which means more work for you. Conversely, low temperatures cause slow plant growth. Blinds and proper ventilation will help keep your conservatory cool on hot days, and keeping the temperature above 6°C will keep the plants warm in winter. However, note that plants thrive at different temperature.

 

Repotting - Roots protruding from the pot and a tight and full root ball are some indications that your plants need to repotted. Remove plants from their pots by pulling the pot away from the root ball instead of pulling the plant out by its stem. Loosen the root ball gently and then move the plant to a pot one size bigger or 2-3 cm wider. Water the plants well after potting.

 

Pruning - When the plants are starting to get too big or unmanageable for your conservatory, pinching the tips of bushy plants will help minimise the need for pruning and make plants more compact when they regrow. Pruning shrubs in early spring or late winter, when rapid growth is starting, is best because cuts will heal quickly.

 

Pest Control - The best way to control pests in your conservatory is to frequently check your plants for signs of bugs or moulds. Having proper ventilation can help deter build-up of fungal diseases whereas biological pest controls or chemical sprays can be used to get rid of bugs.

 

These tips can help you manage the plants in your conservatory better if you’re using your conservatory as a greenhouse rather than extra space for your family. Visit our website to learn more about what you can do in or with your conservatory.
