General Information: 

Scaevola, also known as the fan flower, is a stunning plant that can add a touch of beauty to any garden or landscape and is tolerant of hot, sunny locations. With its unique fan-shaped blooms and vibrant colour, it's no wonder why many gardeners are eager to grow this plant. 

1. Choose the Right Location:

Scaevola thrives in full sun, so it's important to choose a location in your garden that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Ensure that the soil is well-draining to prevent waterlogged roots.

2. Useful in hanging baskets or containers. Be sure to use a good quality potting mix.

3. Watering:

Water scaevola regularly, especially during hot and dry periods. Aim to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overhead watering, as scaevola is susceptible to fungal diseases. Instead, water at the base of the plant.

4. Fertilizing:

Feed scaevola with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flowers.

5. Pruning:

Regularly prune scaevola to promote bushier growth and encourage more blooms. Pinch back the tips of the stems to encourage branching. Remove any dead or damaged foliage to maintain the plant's health and appearance.

6. Pests and Diseases:

Scaevola is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for common garden pests such as aphids. If necessary, treat the infestation with organic pest control methods.
