Brown immature Hebe flowers
I have 2 small Hebe bushes in large containers but their emerging young green flowering buds inevitably produce brown 'hairs' on the buds i.e. don't bloom.
I have read that they should have a blood, fish and bone fertiliser which I don't have and am loathe to buy since I read it attracts foxes. Is there an alternative to this? I have been using a potash fertiliser but with mixed results.
I read that they dislike waterlogged conditions i.e. prefer well drained. However, I notice that if they are not watered fairly regularly their leaves tend to look very dry and lose their plumpness/dull shine.
A 'weed' is just a plant in the wrong place - subjective!
