  • Garden care:  Water when necessary but let the soil get reasonably dry in between to avoid overly wet conditions. If you want more flowers then feed your plants once a week with a weak solution of a potash-rich liquid fertiliser such as Tomorite. Deadheading the spent flowers will also encourage more to form.
