I have an white with red carmine centre Hibiscus shrub. It has flowered partly at the top and one side.All the other blooms did not come out. What went wrong and could you adviseme to treat it for next year



What you haven't said is as important as what you've told us! Is it a new shrub? If not, has it done this before, or did it flower normally? Have you changed anything around it, so that maybe the sind is now able to get to that side? How much sun does it get?

I know you can't respond, unless you join us , of course -but these are all things to think about.

Unless we know the answers, it's very difficult to advise you, but I hope that I've at least provided you with food for thought.

My hibiscus a blue one has been in about 4 years and hasnt grown much, and only a few flowers. Im hoping as it gets more established it will perform better.

They do seem to be very slow growers, don't they. If I'd realised that, I might well have bought a bigger one to start with.
