Nemophilia question.

Hi all. Today I planted up my hanging baskets, Iv'e put some Nemophilia around the sides, I have never grown this before but they look quite healthy, should I pinch them out or not? I'm also not sure if they will like being in a basket :(



Hi, they shouldn't nee pinching out, as their natural habit is to spread, they're usually planted as edging for beds, or in window boxes, so shouldn't have any problem with a hanging basket, but keep them well watered, as if we get any hot dry weather, they tend to stop flowering, if they don't get plenty water, Derek.

I agree, never needed to pinch them out in the past. I have put them in baskets as an alternative to lobelia and they did very well until we went away on holiday. hot dry weather and no water ...'nuff said :o(

Thanks. I'll just leave them be then and see what show they put on. Its always interesting for me when I buy a plant Iv'e not had before, to see what it looks like in flower. I'll look forward to it flowering.
