Keep plants dis­ease free

Gardeners' World - - What To Do Now -

The com­bi­na­tion of low light, cold tem­per­a­tures and high hu­mid­ity after wa­ter­ing makes the per­fect con­di­tion for fun­gal rot. Re­duce the risk of this dis­ease by reg­u­larly go­ing through your plants, pick­ing off dead or yel­low­ing leaves. Dead­head old flow­ers and space plants out as much as pos­si­ble. Wa­ter spar­ingly and ven­ti­late when tem­per­a­tures al­low. Clear up the plant de­bris from the green­house and put it on the com­post heap.
