lovely both of them-the leaves are really interesting aswell, yes i can see the parrot beaks :-) are they oriental and need hot weather? :)

17 Jun, 2012

 

From the Canary Isles - like hot weather, but can be over-wintered in a frost free greenhouse.

17 Jun, 2012

 

i only have a mini greenhouse-do they have the same effect? :)

17 Jun, 2012

 

Not really, but they're good in the shed.
They are good for hardier plants though.

17 Jun, 2012

 

if i put my g.h in the shed then cud i grow more tender things in it over winter? :-)

17 Jun, 2012

 

You could store them (if the shed has a window). Start off with borderline hardy such as this.
Fuchsias would be good in it too - look for Thallia as a good starter.

17 Jun, 2012

 

ooooooh i like that one ~ tongues of fire!!!

17 Jun, 2012

 

My favourite annual plant - looks exotic but is easy!

18 Jun, 2012

 

very exotic!!

lots of sun needed i expect!???

18 Jun, 2012

 

It does rather like it coming from the Canary Isles!

18 Jun, 2012

 

I wish they would write on the plant labels where they originate from ~ it helps a lot to imagine them where they are really happy.

maybe if i ever move i might have one of these, best stick to my ferns, hostas, welsh poppies!!!! and look in on your photos for the rest!!!

18 Jun, 2012

 

It would be a good idea actually!!

18 Jun, 2012

 

i should write to some of the plant sellers!!! cos i have soooo much spare time?????????!!

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

Meanie:

It's looking great! I love how you're posting plants of weeds, lately. LOL! :>)

18 Jun, 2012

 

I know - Day Lilies everywhere!!
I would be very happy if this would self seed everywhere!

18 Jun, 2012

 

Meanie:

I was just giving you a bad time. This plant can naturalize in some gardens here in southern California, however, it's not a weed here. :>)

18 Jun, 2012

 

Not possible to give me a hard time after a day like today!!!

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

upside down world. sometimes it makes you want to give up.

18 Jun, 2012

 

Meanie:

What horrible news! I hope your day is better tomorrow!

19 Jun, 2012

 

Reckon that there are ways to make a few quid from it now!
Our insurers have assured the owner that they will insist on it being repaired to his satisfaction, and will fight the drivers insurers all the way.
