West Midlands, United Kingdom
I grew these for the first time this year...and was exxtremely disappointed. I had loads of vibrant green foliage...and about 7 flowers in total! I know a few people on here had the same experience.
However, I would like to know WHAT to do with them now. They were grown in deep pots....perhaps that was the problem...NOT enough room in pots despite the depth?!
Would they be better planted out in the garden next Spring?
Should I leave them in the post over-winter or is that too risky?
Do I cut them back as they are up, over and all around an obelisk?
I've read a little about them on here but I haven't found anything about over-wintering them....YET!
ANY advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
