@David one I like about these plants is that they are very hardy.I have a few that I almost lost due to severe yellowing of the leaves. I am really happy to see the progress they have made. By the way their hardiness makes them ideal specimens for bonsai.
@Jason and @flof1952 I am really surprised how hardy they are given they are native to the Mediterranean and tropics! This was a dried stick in April!! Would love to let this grow up the side of the house but I'm sure that would be pushing my luck in Jersey! So it's usually in the conservatory.
My unhappy Bougainvillea. Its been in the conservatory for the past few years and never flowers very well. So thanks to advice from @tucksjersey and @mftb it is now outside soaking up the last of the Jersey summer. I wonder if it is too late for it to flower this year...?
@David Bougainvilla like direct sun light and they will bloom where there is a relatively good amount of natural light. I dont know how long you've relocated it but still haven't gotten any blooms you can apply a water soluble fertilizer #bloombooster with a greater percentage of #phosphorus. I hope this works for you.
