Heavenly Blue23rd July 2011 • In The Garden • Stephanie Donaldson
Never was a flower more aptly name than Ipoemea ‘Heavenly Blue’. There is something about the pure shape and clear colour that takes my breath away. This year I planted a couple in the greenhouse amongst the tomatoes so that no matter how bad the weather I could still enjoy the flowers. I also grew 5 plants in a 20cm pot which I tucked in among the outdoor tomatoes at the beginning of July and they are flowering away. Young plants I moved outside earlier have never really got going. Lesson learned.
