Thats a shame KF - but its been such a cold and wet August here that its ruined some stay at home holidays for campers etc.

I have only had one on mine this year......I am really envious.

I wonder why that is HB? They do need light?

19 Aug, 2011

 

Mine has lots of light. I have had three flowers at different times...just as they have opened, we've had a rainy spell...and the leaves, which were large and healthy in early summer are now just a handful and very small :((

I think it must have been the heat early on then the cold wind on and off after. I saw 2 more buds but they just didn't surface to flower.

Exactly the same thing with mine, HB, new buds and leaves rising and then giving up...
We've had heatwaves followed by colder rainy spells...
I think its confused and unhappy...
