I have read with interest the tips on preparing plants for the show bench, but being an overseas member I am unlikely to present a plant to an AGS Show. I imagine I am like many members, interested in producing quality plants simply for the satisfaction of doing so.

I know the need for appropriate potting mix and fertilizing regime (I guess some off this comes with experience) and to turn the plants regularly. But what else? Can I expect to have great looking plants if they are not grown in a glass house? How do you get plants to open their flowers all at once?
