Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We took a break from NGS openings in 2021/22 but we’ll be back in 2023!

Here’s the very sad hibiscus @vegandmore @ejonesy 😢 It’s in a very dry flower bed and gets sun for most of the day. Strangely I’ve just noticed that a neighbour a few doors down has one in a similar facing position but hers is against the house wall so looks to be more protected. Any thoughts? 🤔 #hibiscus #summer-drought-2022 💚

Mine is in the open but in a slated area so doesn’t dry out if that helps. Have you fed it Barbara?

Mine's close to a high fence but I wouldn't class it as a dry position. It's rained here quite a bit over the last two weeks, I won't need to give it a drink during this current hot spell.

To be fair Barbara, that's what my 'half price bargain' looked like when I rescued it from a garden centre. It's taken 2yrs of very little happening and a move to a different bed last year to get it to settle in.

Can only suggest feeding watering, and a good talking yo.

I have to admit that I haven’t this year, Chris. Do you think it would help this late in the season? 🤔 @vegandmore

@ejonesy It didn’t do much last year but then I had just moved it so I thought it was sulking! Perhaps I’m too impatient 😂😂

Threatening it with the compost bin might help, Joan! 😂😂 @joannie.a

I've had this shrub for a few years now but it rarely has more than a couple of flowers on it. This year it has loads, probably because there's been so much rain!!! #hibiscus #pinkflowers #mygardentoday
