    Blooming Marvelous

     

    Begonia

    Begonias are renowned for their stunning flowers and foliage available in a huge range of leaf shapes, designs and colours and  flowers in a variety of colours. While some species favour shady conditions, others thrive in direct sunlight, and there's varieties to suit pots, tubs, garden beds and hanging baskets. Generally  begonias favour bright filtered light with no exposure to harsh midday sun with good ventilation. Some species will also tolerate deep shade and do well planted under trees and shrubs. Some of the cane-stemmed and wax varieties will tolerate full sun. They require free- draining soil improved with compost. Heavy clay soil that becomes waterlogged is unsuited, as it can cause root and stem rot. In pots, use a light free- draining potting mix containing coco coir, perlite or vermiculite. They don't  need a lot of watering and try to water the soil and not the foliage.

    Bougainvillea

    All Bougainvillea are really easy to grow. The prefer a sunny position which will produce the best flowering but most of them will grow in part shade but they will flower less. They will grow in most soil types but need good drainage. To get the best and the heaviest flowering from your Bougainvillea keep the plants somewhat on the dry side. Pruning to remove the old flower heads and to shape the bush is best done throughout the year as and when needed. Bougainvilleas can be heavy feeders, so a slow release fertilizer that is high in Potash is recommended for use in spring, summer and autumn. Mulching to keep the soil cool and moist is beneficial, a new layer of mulching material should be applied at the end of winter each year as the existing mulch rots down over time.

    Frangipani

    The Frangipani flowers in summer and well into autumn. They are available in countless single and bi-colour combinations, from the yellow and white to pinks and oranges, reds and purples. Frangipanis are hardy, long living and will thrive in most tropical to sub tropical to warm temperate climates, and they have been known to adapt to cool climates. They are sensitive to frost but, once established, can tolerate light frosts. During dry summers, water newly planted trees a few times a week, when the soil feels dry. Once established, they’re fairly drought tolerant although watering every now and then in a while will help them along. Frangipanis suit a wide range of soils, but ensure the soil is well-drained With heavier soils, plant them in raised beds with free draining mix or in pots filled with good-quality potting mix.

    Geranium

    Geraniums prefer sunlight, so look for a sheltered position that gets 5–6 hours of direct sun a day, preferably earlier in the day. Well drained soil is a must with clay soil dig in plenty of compost and plant them in raised mounds to improve drainage. They will also grow well in pots and be sure to use a premium potting mix. Water Geraniums regularly and let the soil dry out in between waters as over watering may cause root rot. Removing spent flowers and old leaves regularly twill keep plants looking their best and prune to encourage fresh growth.

    Gerbera

    Gerberas are perennials that will grow in most areas but they thrive best in warmer climates.The like full sun and well-drained soil and to be well watered over the warmer months..

To encourage more flowers remove spent blooms on a regular basis. 

    Hibiscus

    Hibiscus vary greatly in hardiness, but most are susceptible to frost and drought. For best results position in full sun with a moist, rich, well-drained soil. During the growing season, water regularly, and we recommend mulching the surrounding area with (ensuring it doesn’t touch the stem) to help keep roots cool and moist in summer. These plants also grow well in pots. 

    Hydrangea

    Hydrangeas grow best in part shade although some hardy varieties will tolerate full sun. They are a uniquely versatile as the flower colour in most varieties can be changed due to the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. They will need regular watering through the warmer months and will benefit from a good soaking each week if they are planted in the ground. If they are wilting they are drying out and in need of water. If planting in pots try to water them daily.

    Lotus

    Lotus are perennial plants that shoot in spring, then flower during summer & autumn before going dormant in winter. Lotus need 6 hours of direct sunlight to flower, so when deciding on a position for your new plant, make sure it has plenty of sunshine. Secondly Lotus are water plants and if your growing them in a pot or bowl make sure you keep the water level 5cm over the soil, but do not submerge the leaves. You may need to re-pot (careful not to disturb the roots) your lotus into a larger pot or bowl after you purchase, ask in store on how to do this correctly. Keep plants away from flowing water, water features or fountains.
