Bottle Brush plant.

West Midlands, United Kingdom Gb

Last year my Calistomone got attacked by the frost, and I thought it had died. I moved it into a pot to encouurage it to pick up. It still survived this winter but I cant get it to flower. What do I need to do in order to get it to flower? can anyone help me please?

On plant Calistomone



My bottlebrush, planted out in my garden, looked sorry after its first winter but has never looked back since. Try giving it a monthly feed of balanced liquid fertiliser during the growing season and keep it well watered. Cut back the watering during winter
