@pelly to be honest Jane I do very little. They like heat and sun but not much water so don’t suffer if they’re a little neglected 😂 I just moved it into the greenhouse since it’s turned cold and it’s now on the 4th flowering since I got it at the start of summer. I just go in and water it a little every few days and it’s put on a load of new growth and a few more flowers too 😁 definitely try one, they’re much easier to take care of than you’d expect ☺️

The cold here, which is very little, just being slight frost once in a while, does not bother mine. The wind is what beats them up. Your so sweet. My son told me this week that I like "bougainvillea too much". I just laughed-guilty as charged. 😂😂❤️

comment
gjones

Maybe your bougainvillea will grow more next year. This was a weird year weather wise for plants to grow big and bloom too! No my agapanthus didn't bloom this year but sometimes it takes a couple of years for them to mature. When we got the early frosts, I didn't want it to get stunted so I brought it indoors. Now about a month later it looks like it's going to bloom!

comment

@gjones I hope so 🙂 I always assumed the hotter it was the better plants would do but having gone through this summer I stand corrected! It’s destroyed and hampered the progress of so many. Let’s hope their rest will reignite them for next year 😁 oh even better that it’ll be it’s first flower ☺️ the frosts would have put an end to that little flower spike so it’s great you caught it at the right time 😋

I hope so. Certainly feels cooler here this morning. I guess it'd be too much to ask for a drop of rain too!

@jeatacake it’s so nice to wake up and not dread moving 😂 we have cloud here but rain doesn’t look likely unfortunately. How is it looking for you now?

So far so good thanks, which isn't often the case. Anyway, good acclimatisation for Thailand in a few months 😁

Wow! Lucky you having one of these. Do you bring this indoors in winter?

@jeatacake would you believe it’s from a supermarket! Starting to look really good now 😍 I have it on a removable trellis so I can bring it in before frosts. After killing one last winter I learned my lesson 😬

Fantastic👌 I must look out for one in supermarkets up here. Maybe o d to have in the house, as I doubt it would survive in an unheated greenhouse over winter.

@jeatacake hoping my heated outhouse will be enough if it’s on the inside wall 🤞🏼 will brighten up the place over winter 😉

It will probably go semi-dormant over winter but if a good few degrees above zero, then it should be fine if kept a bit on the dry side 🤞

I only tried growing these once but had no success. They are beautiful when they bloom.

@gjones fortunately I bought it in flower so have seen what it’ll look like but I didn’t think it’d flower again. I cut it back after the first flowering so I’m hoping that’s what’s encouraged the new flush of flowers. And I’m sure the heat we have here at the moment is helping ☀️
