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.

I'll take some pics for you shortly, the White ones are great but the pinks arent doing that well.

They didnt have many leaves when they arrived so I guess I'll give them a season to settle in

Hi all, I'm looking to purchase some of these for this year. Can anyone recommend a good supplier?

Do Bay Trees grow on stalks or are they static/ grafted?

Need a closer photo, cant see anything from that one sorry

Janurary Plants; Which are the easiest?

I'm a flower addict so I'm always on the look out for colour at all times of the year.

Hellebores and Primroses are my favourites at the moment =)

You could also try starting some bare root perrenials in pots ready for Summer, these will benefit from being started as early as possible.
