Datura Metel


By Meanie

Datura Metel (Datura solanaceae)

Another flower on my second less bushy plant. This plant seems more concerned with gaining height than pushing out lots of flowers at the moment.

Love the scent of these flowers :)
I've been to a nursery specialising Brugmansia before and it was amazing! I'm attaching the link below, so please check it out when you feel like it :)

Thank you Tommymoo.
I can't seem to get my Brugmansia to flower at all for some reason!

Oh, Meanie, it'll flower..your Brugmansia needs some more time, that's all?! Maybe too much water? Better to wait until the plant gets really really thirsty. Look forward to seeing your photo of this angel loaded of flowers very soon!!!!!

Yesterday I visited Will Giles (the owner of "The Exotic Garden"). It was about 7 p.m. and the place was flooded with the sweet scent of brugmansia. My goodness, the scent was ... out of the world!! I asked him the secret of growing brugmansia and he said, "you want to give it literally 'buckets' of food." In fact, he's just applied loads of "fish, blood and bone" and "chiken poo" around his brugmansia.

I noticed he had wrote about brugmansia in his blog (10 Aug). Please check it out when you have the time; I found it very interesting :)
