Where NOT to order from online

Posted: 15/11/2013 at 17:35

I always like to go the garden centre to see what I'm buying. I do not trust any online company for live plants whatsoever. :P

I have the broadway lights variety but it only flowered once this year. I dont think I cut the flowering stems down far enough after the first flush

How about wrapping the outside of the pot with some bubble wrap? That should give the pot some insulation.

Will I get the flowers though? I saw a 4 year old specimen in late June this year and the flowers were beautiful but my garden is quite small so I guess I'll keep it cut.

I'll consider planting it out in early Spring then

I have one of these currently in a 37cm Terracotta Pot. Only planted it in the Summer.

Its doing fine however I'm wondering if the pot will eventually become a bit small. What size container should I be using or would I be better finding a spot in the garden for it?

I would be inclined to cut the foliage back to stop the stress to the plant. Best for it to achieve a good root system now whilst its still warm.

Should make for a much better plant next year
