Another 'troll' down the garden!

When you get sunshine, doesn't it make your heart sing. Well it does mine. So the first thing you do after hanging out the washing is have an amble and see whats been going on.......

there goes the tree fern again, another 2 fronds, even with all the wet weather I still stick the hose over it most days


Do you remember the post earlier in the year showing this stem well as you can see it is slowly blossoming


Good job my favourite colour is pink, I just love these and I hope to get the really big white ones for next year! To be honest these where very badly treated, I had totally forgotten about them so I shoved them in some compost, they had 2 chances, so I am surprised they have grown at all.There are another couple of clumps around the garden.



These leaves amaze me just look at the colour and the texture (Red Caster Oil Plant)



Another neglected plant (Elephant Ears)I chuck chicken pellets on it every once in a while and it seems quite happy at the bottom of the garden, I should put it in a bigger pot, but I've run out of compost!!!!!!!!



My Ensete 'Montbeliardii' currently in the greenhouse but producing a new leaf.



Do you remember me moaning about this plant back in June well after some research I found I was killing the little mite!!!! So brought it inside the greenhouse and lo and behold look how its repaid me!! I am hard on my plants!!!! lol!!!



Some of my Brugmansia cuttings that have already taken....




and finally the Elephants Ear I put in the pond at the weekend!!!

I do love your plants; the Elephants Ears are spectacular. You've certainly got jungle green fingers. Love the photos in the heading. You are clever. Happy Gardening.Rx

It's so nice to take a tour around some of your favourite plants and to see so many different things!! Lovely! :o)

Is that a pink kind of arum lily? your jungle plants are simply wonderful, I would never dare grow them, they'd be dead within weeks, I fear.
