Heat

Petunias(comp)Yesterday was a cooler and a cloudy day, the heat divides opinion here some people love it, others wilt and find life difficult. The plant world is similar, for example, palms need to be moved in the summer as they must have heat for new roots to grow before the colder weather. Many plants rush to flower and seed before it gets too hot and then appear to become dormant until the cooler weather. Yet at the moment some plants appear to thrive in the heat, including hibiscus and bougainvillea, these petunias are just about surviving and benefit from a daily soak.
