Don’t forget to open the greenhouse & cold frames

Minus 12 C night-time, plus 5 C day-time

Even if the temperatures at night are well below zero, do open your unheated greenhouse or cold frames during the day. At this time of  year the sun soon heats up the greenhouse or cold frames, Auriculas do not like these big swings in temperatures.

At this time of the year my auriculas are normally putting on some new growth, but at the moment they are still dormant. They will not get into good growth until we have plus degrees both night and day; this looks a long way off just now.
The greenhouse can soon be over 20 C in the sunshine
