My Brugmansias are fine! How brilliant is that! I joined ABADS-America Brugmansia and Datura Society and posted pics on there forum and the concensus of opinion is that they are healthy plants its probably the up and down weather temps we have in the UK!!!
Smiling broadly here!!!
I went out this morning and took pics of about 6 of my brugs that have flower buds on, but when I came in they where totally out of focus! I wasn't going out again as it was only 7C quite chilly! So far 6 seeds I bought from Ebay have grown, I shall let them get a bit bigger before potting on.
In the mean time K has been digging her heart out and has cleared all the suckers from the plant in my neighbours garden, that prefers to be in mine and because it is so rampant, we keep digging up my plants to make sure we get all the roots out so my plants never really get going!!!
you can see it the other side of the fence. This is the bags of roots and sukers she dug out
I seem to have a flying chicken in that pic!!!!
Further down she cleared out a plant that had been taking over
so now we or probably I will take the opportunity to paint the fence and even look into getting some, bamboo rhizome barrier then dig down about 2 ft and pop it in. Hopefully then the neighbours plants will remain in her garden. I have plenty of plants to fill the gaps, but today we are going off to the shops to have a browse and a bit of retail therapy.
K's boyfriend is coming for a week tomorrow, so may take the opportunity of using his muscle about the garden! Must remind her to remind him to bring some old trainers and not his white sparkly ones!!!!!!
