I have mine potted up as I bring itinto the house in the summer. It is in a cold greenhouse over winter. What feeding would you recomend?
Hi, I've recently bought a 2 mtr plant (June) in flower. I've planted it next to a post of a pagoda. Due the 'concrete' around this post I had to plant it 6 inches away from the actual post; the soil/roots are covered by gravel/loose stones - Are these plants OK with the roots all covered like this? The flowers have started to die off - will they return this summer?
I have just bought one of these for a container against a west facing wall and the ticket says that it is hardy outdoors. However I have just read on this site that it should be overwintered in colder areas. I live in the south of england. If this is to be overwintered then it is not the plant I need for the positon. Any help please?
