Now Do I Detect The First Signs Of Spring?

Yes I know it still feels cold and dreary, but I do believe spring is starting to appear and the winter is slowly becoming a distant memory. Brighter days, lighter evenings and dare I say snowdrops and daffodils! Well if this is the case, I'll be the first to welcome this with open arms, after my Plumeria that is, which will have no doubt already been sensing these changes

As mentioned above, Plumeria are very sensitive to changes in the seasons and with spring imminent, you should now be taking a long hard look at the tip of your dormant Plumeria for the first signs of it waking. The main thing to look for is a very subtle change in tip colour, from brown to green. But you may also see other clues, such as a stickiness around the tip or the first signs of 'little claws' (baby leaves) developing. If you see none of the above, then consider your Plumeria to still be soundly sleeping, give it a drop of warm water and SuperThrive and return it to its place of rest for a few more weeks. If it does appear to be stirring, then bring it out of its resting place and get it into as much sunlight as you can. Gently misting the tip with some of our Leafdew Plumeria Mist, which simulates dew, will also help wake it from its slumber. And remember whatever you do always ensure it is kept warm and away from any cold windows or draughts at all times

Now whilst I appreciate that some days are still very cold, with these crisp conditions do come some great spells of sunshine. So it's just a case of getting your Plumeria into position quickly and then back out into safety when the sun disappears. Yes, it can be a pain, but it is definitely well worth it, as if your Plumeria is awake you will notice a difference. If your Plumeria is dormant, a few hours bathing in direct sunshine will soon start to rouse it from its slumber. Just make sure your Plumeria is kept warm at all times, protected from any draughts and well back from any cold window panes. Glass is a great chaneller of the cold and the cause of many a problem. I know I go on about this, but take it from me there is nothing worse than having nursed a Plumeria through the long hard winter, only to see it killed by the cold because it got forgotten

So in summary, whilst our weather continues to be changeable, do try to make the most of any available sunshine. If your Plumeria is awake, starting to gently mist its growth tips and leaves with some of our Leafdew Plumeria Mist, whilst also adding a small amount of our Hawaiian Super Bloomer when you water, is a great way to start building up its strength and boosting it with nutrients in preparation for summer blooming

As spring approaches, adding small amounts of SuperThrive and Hawaiian Super Bloomer in occasional half cup-fuls of warm water is a great way to build up the nutrient content of your Plumerias medium already for the summer. Getting small amounts of SuperThrive and Hawaiian Super Bloomer into the soil at this early stage will ensure it is fully revitalised and give your Plumeria a really rich feast. But don't over do it, as no one likes waking up in a swamp and too much water at this stage will cause your Plumerias roots to rot. If in doubt, just use one of our Water, Soil and Daylight Analysers to safely work out when its roots are wet or dry, allowing you to react accordingly

So with the first signs of spring tantalisingly close and the prospect of warm sunny days becoming more and more vivid, what better time to start planning your own summer Plumeria program. And there's no easier way than to make use of our Plumeria Grow To Order Service. Just choose the Plumeria variety you like and we'll grow it for you over the next few months in the safety of our Climate Controlled Nursery. When it's ready we'll let you know and post it out, already for the spring and summer. No fuss, No worries, just a great way to beat the cold and guarantee having a Plumeria all set up and ready for summer blooming

Yours Sincerely
