Thanks Ceres, could be. Says it will probably revert back next year (boo)

A new coloured flower has appeared on our indoor hibiscus plant. Usually the flowers are peach but today a bright pink flower has appeared. This is the first time in the 6 years we have had the plant. Is this normal? Or has something caused it? Much prefer the new pink!

Garden journal needed

Posted: 06/09/2015 at 11:40

I'm looking for a good garden/plant journal to replace the various scraps of paper, newspaper cuttings, saved web pages and word documents that I seem to have accumulated over the last few years. Can anyone recommend one? Ideally it would include jobs to be done, particularly pruning jobs, what I've planted and when, etc. Having looked on Amazon the best of the bunch seems to be the RHS 5 year Record Book. Has anyone used this? Or are there better ones out there?
