i have a hibiscus syriacus oiseau blue in my garden for 3 or 4 years now but it has only ever produced one flower i have clay soil and live in the north of england any surgestion would help regerds scott



I have this it likes a sunny spot. They dont usually need pruning after they mature. They are full hardy but in colder areas, shrubs might need a winter mulch? What feed do you give it?

Mine are not yet flowering another week or so. Mine is in clay and I give mine a good mulch of well rotted garden compost every spring and a handful of bone fish and blood. Its still not too late to try some fish and blood around the base before it flowers this year. I think if it does not flower this year I would consider pruning it next spring as well.
