    Hi Jenny image

    It means that for some reason the plant's growth has slowed down - it could be due to lack of water, lack of nutrition in the soil or a sudden change in temperature or something else. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • ah I thought perhaps that's what it meant, just wanted to be sure - thank you image
