The Sun Has Got His Hat ON!

African violets and sunBlimey – it’s been a while since I made a post – the time has passed in a bit of blur over the last few months as I’ve had a lot of interest from my website (www.cloudviolets.co.uk). Perhaps the miserable weather has encouraged people to buy a few plants for the home!

Today I rolled up my sleaves and started to re-organise my african violets ready for longer (and hopefully warmer) days. One of the KEY things that had to be done was to move some of the plants that have overwintered in bright places (south-facing windowsills and conservatory etc.) to more shaded quarters. This is quite important as african violets like a bit of light, but continuous, direct sunlight will end up scorching (brown blotches) or bleaching leaves.
