  3. Can potted pussy willow grow in our hot weather? Saw it on sale in Ikea but didn't buy. There's also potted sakura in Ikea. They look wonderful!

    1. Yes, they can. Pussy willows can sprout shoots, green leaves and their elongating catkins is a sign that the flowers are blooming. Potted sakura can be grown here too. Place them in a cool but brightly lit area. The only problem is that they usually don't last longer than a year and will not re-flower again. Just enjoy while it lasts during the CNY period.

  4. Hi I recently bought the hyacinth and I was wondering if I can keep planting it after cny or will it wither once it finished flowering?

    1. We usually buy them as bulbs and let them bloom fully for display during the CNY season. After the flowers have withered off, it is time to discard the plant. They will not rebloom again.
