Yesterday, the tunnel got up to 48 degrees. Now baring in mind, I had watered everything the night before and in the morning, yesterday afternoon I found the following in the tunnel.
MARIGOLD Durango Mix
Dried to a crisp, genuinely not sure if any of these are salvageable.
HELIANTHUS Autumn Time
Look completely destroyed, again, don’t think they’re going to survive.
PANSY Giant Fancy Mix
These are the ones I spent hours pricking out last weekend, gone.
PAPAVER Seriously Scarlet
These are so destroyed, there is literally no sign of them in the tray any more.
At least with this batch, I can still see evidence of death!
I am hoping to salvage SOME of these, but I have lost the majority.
To say I am angry and disappointed is an understatement, but I can’t let it get to me (although to be honest, at this point I do feel like giving up on everything).
I had both doors open on the tunnel, but the warm air and sun just got the temperature up to such epic proportions that the plants simply baked as though they were in an oven 😦
