Phil Houghton

Back to Cultivars Next

Raised by Jack Woolman and released in 1973, Woolman's also released a Yellow sport in 1993.
Most growers grow Phil 2nd crown, root end of January, 1st stop mid April, 2nd stop, one break 25th May and the other 5th June. I only use a 9” pot as I find they don’t dry out enough for a bigger pot. Andy Wickham uses a 10”pot and grows 8 up and cuts down to one when the buds are secured. Aim to secure the bud by 8th August. I don’t overfeed, Andy gives full feeds. He lives on the eastern side of the country and his plants dry out far more than mine do.
