Azorina vidalii
« on: February 02, 2015, 07:48:38 PM »
Hello ! I have five plants of Azorina vidalii which I raised from seed formed by a plant which I grew here in Sweden maybe 6 years ago. The first time I grew it the plant ( it was just one ) flowered during its second season, but the plants I have now have not flowered yet and I have had them since 2012. I plant them in a big clay pot with lean sandy soil every May, and dig them up in September and keep them indoors during the cold months. The stems are quite thick now, and woody. I just wonder what the trick is to get them to flower? Should they be kept drier in the summer months, maybe planted in even leaner and more well drained soil so they starve, or should I fertilize them ? Would be thankful for any advice.

I had some in 2.6 liter pots in the greenhouse.  They were under 40% shadecloth all summer.  I fed them with soluble fertilizer twice each summer.  They bloomed every year.  I finally got rid of them because I didn't want to bother with frost-sensitive plants.
