Watering can be a tricky business, they need daily watering but be careful the alkalinity of the water can affect the colour of the blooms and can turn this blue bloom into a pink one. Our local water is desalinated, I'll let you know if there is any effect.
Yellow leaves indicate over watering and if new growth is yellow, it may be caused due to the water being too alkaline.
Also be careful not to water the leaves, water the base of the base. Brown spots on the leaves are a disease called Botrytis that is caused by water standing on the leaves for any length of time, just remove the leaves.
Whilst in bloom a hydrangea should be watered daily, but reduced when it finishes blooming.
I selected a plant that filled the pot with it's greenery and still has a few buds. Hydrangeas best like humid conditions to thrive in, with summer on the way, this should be the perfect weather for the hydrangea. The air con is on daily now till the end of November and set around 25-30c. The hydrangea is by the front door where it gets plenty of natural light during the day and is shielded from the air con unit. If the plant gets too cold, large black patches will appear on the leaves and I'll have to rethink where it lives in the house.
The back garden as we call it, because it is accessed via the kitchen door, which is actually on the side of the house, is the best place to sit in the evenings as we actually have some shade out there, although it won't be long before it is too hot to be outside full stop.
We have to protect the furniture from the sun and dust during the day from the sun.
We found these basil plants growing outside Dragon Mart, I had brought our basil indoors now, but as there are two plants I'm going to take one back outside and see what happens.
I loved these floral displays inside Dragon Mart, you can buy anything your heart desires from there. On this trip we found a shop selling dental chairs and pink wigs, a dog push chair and if you wanted to open a cinema or a crisp filling production line, you could buy cinema seats and filling machines there, I kid you not.
We've got a few issues with lighting in the house, it's too bright in the main part of the house and there isn't enough light in the bathrooms, plus the bulbs, or globes as they're called here, give off too much heat, sadly all our lights are recessed, so it was just a case of buying new LED bulbs, but I did love the many light shops, you can see from the picture just how big the shops are inside Dragon Mart.
