Moving a potted plant...what a difference it made!

15 comments


A few days ago I posted a photo of my Pieris Forest Flame and mentioned how I had moved the pot, only backwards about 4 feet, and what a difference the protection of the wall had made.
Today I found the photo I had taken of it last year, when it was at the front of my pot display and more exposed.
I thought I would post the 2 photo’s in a blog so people can see how a change of position can make all the difference. It still faces the same way, North/West, as I only have one area to put my pots.

What a beautiful plant and how perceptive of you to see it just needed a change of position - much like people.

Thanks everyone, I just hoped it may help anyone with a plant that's struggling. It's hard to believe such a small change would make such a difference! :o))
