              Got back from holiday this week and one C. Tropical is flowering. Although , as everyone else is reporting, the growth is not as vigorous as last year.
              I dumped my main stock off C. Bengal Tiger as they had strong signs of the virus. I have one left at the front of the house but growth is sluggish. keeping a close eye on it , if any suspicion of virus in the bin it goes !

                hi guys, can I ask a quick question? Can you alter the colour of the flower by using the wrong compost, feed etc?

                  Then I think I've been sold the wrong plants then! I ordered "Shenandoah" and "Assaut" from Harts which are both supposed to be shades of pink. What I have coming through is definitely not pink! I'll post some photos this week when the buds open a little more.

                    I like this one, iots good for growing in containers as it flowers at only 2ft or so, but the flowers are quite big, its "kreta"
