Bougainvillea Plants


david.slimings added on October 6, 2017 | Answered

We live in the north of England and have had a Bougainvillea in a pot for around 10 years. It is kept in a south facing conservatory so gets plenty of sunlight. It\'s autumn here and we have had a sudden leaf drop, not surprising in autumn you may say, but we do not recall this happening so suddenly in previous years. Is this normal or do we have a problem?
