Thank you, Aleyna! Glad you liked it! Unfortunately it is now dead :( This last week we have had some very high temps (for the UK at least!) 31 & 32C & many, many hours of very strong sunshine & as our kitchen window gets the full sun from 1 o'clock till about 6pm the flowers were burnt! :,( I'm not used to having these plants flower in the kitchen window & so I forgot all about it & so I didn't notice till I was closing the blinds before going to bed.

I've now moved it out onto the balcony where it will stay till about November, unless we get frosts first.

Sorry to hear. Hight temps here too. I moved some plants because it was crescent moon. Even watering it, they became dry. Crossing my fingers to dont loose them.

"I moved some plants because it was crescent moon."

Why did the phase of the Moon cause you to move your plants? I've never paid any attention to the Moon's phases while gardening!

I know some people use a Moon calendar & use it for all their activities in the garden.
