Bougainvillea – 17cm pot various colours
If you’re looking for a bold, colourful climber, you’ve found it!
Bougainvillea is a vigorous, hardy, tropical vine which has lush green leaves. From mid-Spring through late Summer, spectacular coloured bracts form which in the centre of each is a pure white flower. One the flowers have finished, prune the plant back to encourage healthy new growth or keep to the desired size. Bougainvillea is a fast-growing climber which requires support and space to grow. Best grown in all day sun in free-draining soil.
Position: Full Sun
Make sure to prepare the soil prior to planting. Mixing in a bag of well-aged animal manure or compost can help to condition and revitalise tired soil. Make sure to blend compost/manure with the pre-existing soil, mixing together thoroughly. Once the soil has been prepare, dig a hole which is wider, but not deeper, than what the original size of the pot the plant has come in. Position the plant in the hole and backfill any gaps with the excess soil. Give the plant a deep soaking of water to help settle the roots.
If planting into a pot, make sure the container selected is large enough for the plant which is going to be planted. Never pot a plant into a container which is too small. Use a premium quality potting mix as this has all the added fertilisers and wetting agents required for having a healthy plant.
