Greenhouse plants do best when given small but frequent dosages of fertilizer. Weekly applications can be given by diluting by five the recommended monthly proportion.



Defining Shade

Seed packages tell us that a plant should be grown in full sun, or partial shade or full shade. What do they mean?

Light Shade - area is completely shaded for two to four hours during the heat of the day.

Partial Shade - means an area receives about four to five hours of shade.

Full Shade - lasts all day, it's the dark shade you find under a group of trees having a multi-story canopy or under a building overhang. Fully shaded areas receive some light from reflected sunny areas.

Dense Shade - is the darkest day-long shade, no reflected light reaches these areas. You will find dense shade under a very dense, low-branched tree, or in a dense grove of trees.

When planting a tree always use native soil to fill around the root ball. Using enriched soil will pamper the roots and they'll refuse to penetrate poorer surrounding soil to establish a good root base.
