Help with Hibiscus Shrub

Posted: 12/02/2013 at 14:21

You prune it after it has flowered, but you don't have to prune it at all. It depends whether you want it kept compact or bigger and looser.

Verdun also said the kindest most sincere people are not religious. I have found exactly the opposite.  The pope is not worshipped, but he is admired and looked up to by the Catholics he is head of - not the same thing.

Some of those woman were quite attractive and some looked nice rather than powerful, but I hadn't heard of most of them.

Look after yourself Bjay, keep warm.

Well said Gardening Grandma, Obelix and Lyon Greene.

If there was more tolerence, respect and understanding of our fellow men the world would be a better place. By the way, the average income for a Catholic priest in England is about £10,000 a year. C of E nearer £25000. (I'm not a Catholic, but I do think Christ's teachings are good).

Mine is in a large pot, moved her there when she was young, some years ago and she's flowered reliably ever since.

It opened for me on my laptop. Lots of lovely photos of their garden. I don't prune Nelly Moser every year, but when she gets a bit big or messy or the tips of stems have died off in winter I trim off the tips to healthy buds around March.

This isn't really that sort of forum but, discodave I think you are being rather hard. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. He's 85 and he is the first to resign for 600 years, which I think is a sensible decision.
