My healthy looking potentilla fruiticosa

elliedaisyelliedaisy Posts: 28

it stopped flowering three years ago.  Its only about nine years old and looks very healthy.  Its in a poorish, dry soil but I feed and water it in the summer from time to time.  Its the lovely tangerine one.  Can anyone advise please?

    Had no replies yet, maybe that means its just in the wrong place.  Could I move it in September?  And, are the roots very deep?

    Hi Ellie. Sorry didn't notice your post yesterday.image

    Any chance of pics? Potentillas aren't that fussy about soil or position unless its in a pretty shaded area. Do you prune and if so when?

    Hi, just a thought what feed are you using? Some potentilla growers feed from Feb or June, but they use a rose feed according to manufacturers instructions, as they are of the rosaceae group. I don't feed, but my soil is clay, so is quite rich. Might be just worth checking what feed you use.

    Good luck

    I've been pruning each year to keep it small.  Gulp!  I'll leave it alone for a bit.  Thank you so much everybody.  I haven't figured out how to put photos on here yet.
