Potting Up September's Cuttings

The cuttings, taken from the tender plants that have formed the wonderful displays seen around the college this summer, have rooted and are ready to be potted up into their individual pots. The cuttings taken a month ago, see blog entry 18th September 'Mist Unit Filled With Cuttings', have been out of the mist unit for a week, hardening off, no longer being pampered with under soil heating and a regular misting every 45 minutes. Kieron, Callum, Ali and Sophie spent a rain affected morning in the potting shed and greenhouse until all the cuttings were done. These plants will form next year's summer display and will spend the next six months under glass.
