What's Blooming This Morning

Streptocarpus 'Party Girl" and Kohleria 'Marquis de Sade' are blooming on a -15 degree below zero January morning.

When looking through the plants this morning to see if any needed water, there was some powdery mildew on a couple of the violet's leaves. It's a good time of year to check your collection for problems or pests and take action right away to prevent any further problems.

Fertilizer is important this time of year too... some of the plants that winter indoors and summer outside are looking a little "light green" in the leaves. Remember to feed them so they are in great shape to go back outside when spring finally comes.
