We purchased our red Campsis Radicans in the beginning of May which is depicted below. This picture was taken today. What surprizes me is that many articles claim that Campsis is a fast growing vine so I think something is wrong with ours. Specifically:
- Within 2 months it only gave several new short shoots.
- Many leaves have holes in it. We can't find out which insect might cause those holes.
It is planted in 30cm tall pot with multi-purpose peat based compost (the only compost we could find online at that time). We never fed it with any fertilizer and keep watering it 2-3 times per week. Could you suggest what are we doing wrong with it?
