Has never been as big! Heat & shade seem to have done wonders for this one! 💗 #begonia

Looks fantastic Kerry! I was wondering how your plants handled the heat wave.

@novicegardenlover thank you so much Susan 🙏🏻 with the weather we’ve had I wasn’t even sure I’d have many plants left at this point! They’ve fared well and some have done far better than usual 🤗

@gjones thanks Katy ☺️ some have done well, some suffered, bur haven’t lost any as far as I can tell. I realised the benefits of using pot saucers and bark mulch just in time! 😂

Now that’s another great example of adaptive gardening. Looks like we’ll all have to adapt somewhat if things continue like this year!

@gjones I think you’re right 😐 it’s been a good lesson and surprised me how well a container garden can work through the harshest of weathers. Takes work but that’s what we do for our plants ☺️

Love these 😍 I must restock next year, as all but 1 of mine died over winter in the greenhouse.

@jeatacake thanks Jeff 😁 was surprised to see this. Had it in a pot for 3 summers and it’s never flowered! This year it was attacked badly by the birds and reduced to nothing so just covered it over with fresh soil thinking it might come back next year 😜 it had other ideas 😂

@jeatacake teach me not to give up on plants so soon 😜

If you have the space to keep them, it's worth giving them a bit of leeway. I always think it's worth waiting until at least mid June for regrowth on things which may look dead after winter too 👍

@jeatacake if gardening has taught me anything it’s patience. Not a fan of waiting but it’s surprising what springs up given a little extra time 🤣

I think I've reached the stage where I have so many different plants on the go at any one time, that the time I can devote to any one plant becomes limited to the extent that I can easy forget dormant plants until I notice they've burst into life again, if that makes any sense?😁

@jeatacake 😅 it does make sense 😛 there’s too much other stuff to focus on that you don’t notice the lazy plants 😂 I might have to get more plants in that case 😉😉
