Hi Folks,just wondering If I can leave a newly bought 'Philadelphus' in its pot until I can move some plants around in the border to make room for it later on in the summer. It had got some kind of mulch around the top of the pot, shall I leave it there?



as long as you keep it well watered it will be fine. After all if you'd not bought it, it would sit in its pot all year at the garden centre.

I was thinking that, Seaburngirl lol - but thought maybe they just do ok left in pots and don't flourish. Have been watering a lot so all should be well.

you could always pot it into a bigger pot if you are worried it wont get enough nutrients. Or give it a foliar feed as you would hanging baskets etc.
