Pinching Out The Wallflowers
Four weeks ago the 720 small wallflower plug plants were planted out in to their individual pots, see blog entry for the 20th August 'Wallflower Treasure Primrose and Sunset White'. As the month of October moves ever closer, the month in which the team will start to plant these plants out in to the college borders and containers, it is time to pinch the growing tips out to encourage bushier growth. With such a large number of plants requiring this treatment, Ali soon gave up pinching out the growing tip of each stem between her thumb and forefinger changing over to her secateurs.
