Posted: 02/02/2015 at 15:53

I know freesias are heat-treated before being packed, I guess its difficult to replicate at home.

chillis can be started now, they need a long growing season and some heat to help them germinate

Plant ID help please

Flowers or plants with the name Sharon

Posted: 29/01/2015 at 22:41

I have a large Rose of Sharon which i grew from what was basically a twig.

Its about 6 feet tall now but has never flowered

I did move it into the garden from its container into a lovely sunny spot so fingers crossed this year it will flower for me.

I find they like Acidic Soil and good moisture retention Dave. They are perfect in large containers. Ive been successful using this method for years

Some Ive had for years below

Yeah I am very impressed with the white ones, I planted 1 in the garden too and its doing just as well.

I planted 2 corms and only that 1 came :P

It had 3 flowers and 2 leaves.
