Hibiscus dormancy

Posted: 06/10/2014 at 15:31

My Hibiscus has already lost its leaves.  I'd plant it out but also send the supplier an email stating that if it fails to come into leaf next year you will want a replacement.  They do take ages to start to get leaves, mine doesn't show any growth until mid May and I'm in the warm south.

If you are a Twitter/Facebook user they appear to be on both.  Very public way to attract their attention

Advice needed

You don't say why you are forced to remove them.  If its because of soil contamination I wouldn't eat them but otherwise go ahead and enjoy them

Any recomendations for a garden to visit

I am staying in Hayfield, Derbyshire on Saturday night having visited an elderly Aunt in Rochdale.  Does anyone know of any good gardens to visit in the area between Rochdale and Hayfield/Glossop?

They don't seem to be causing any problems I was just interested as there are so many.  Thanks for your response

I Know these are Shield Bugs but can anyone identify which ones.  I thought they might be Hawthorn Shield bugs as they are near a Hawthorn hedge but the pictures I have seem show them being more green in colour

 Should I be worried that they appear to having a party on my rhubarb and strawberry plants?

Another Knifofia question

My book on propagating plants says to divide in mid to late spring to allow roots to develop.  Not sure if now would be too late.
