7 Months To Bloom

Posted by Jake on 11 October, 2009

It took 7 months for my single flower Hibiscus to start blooming. It really took a hit from last year’s 23 degree knockdown to the ground. The double flower one has been blooming frequently since June. The single plant is now blooming like crazy, just really wish it was faster to come back.

      Yes,I do. Miracle-Gro hose sprayer mix and Milorganite. Milorgnite seems to do nothing in our Florida sand, people in clay soils have such good growth with it.
