Burning Bush Kochia Scoparia

Hi Mobow, unfortunately I'm struggling to keep these seedlings alive. I read that they required plenty of light and sun. I've been watering them with a spray gun ghorouggly 3 times a day. But they are not doing well at all.

Thanks all, I had been getting a bit concerned with the apparent lack on info on the internet. Well I'm a little early Mobow. I've germinated a tray of seedlings and they're currently in a propagator. But I'm in sunny old Costa del Newport so I'm hoping they'll fare well by mid March.

I've managed to germinate some seed and am about to pot them up. Any guidance on growing these in the UK would be greatly appreciated. There doesn't seem to be much info on the internet regarding growing them in colder regions.

Thanks Dave, any idea how much to chop it back? It's about 4 foot off the floor right now with good buds all the way up.

Has anyone had any great success with this? I planted mine last spring and it grew well but didn't flower. I've read online that I need to prune it back to just above a strong set of buds. The plant is currently showing some healthy looking green buds on last year's growth. I'm a bit nervous chopping it back so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Is my black bamboo flowering?

That's a good tip Crystals. I've been doing this with my dianthus for a few years now and it never occurred to me that I could do it with the bamboo.

Thanks for the feedback Berghill. Yes I've been deadheading regularly throughout the summer.

Last year I cut mine back and left them in the border. I mulched over the top with lawn clippings to about 2 inches. Due to the very mild winter in South Wales they have come back lovely this year. Bit of a gamble but it paid off.
