I've bought 3 barefoot Hibiscus plants from T&M and now can't decide where to put them. Are they alright grown in containers either permanent or till I find an appropriate place for them. Thank you



When you say barefoot, I'm assuming you mean bare root. If that's the case, get them into pots or the ground asap - they'll be fine in pots till you decide where you want them. Choose pots which are big enough so that the roots aren't cramped or bent. Water thoroughly and keep them well watered, and make sure the drainage holes in the pots aren't blocked to allow excess water to escape.

Plenty of sun once they stabilised! :)

Ha thanks Bamboo, yes I mean bare root!!

Will they be ok in containers all summer if necessary?

Yes, shouldn't be a problem, provided you remember to water when they're dry.
