Yes, I agree. I've only known them as shrubs but according to my book there are also annuals. Come from the tropics so need to be cosseted!!

Horse Manure in a Vegan Garden

Posted: 30/09/2012 at 15:40

As a horse is a vegetarian or even vegan only consuming grass and other grains/cereals and produces the manure as a natural product and that product is then broken down in the soil by other bacteria/organisms which are not so selective about what they eat...I'm wondering where the problem lies? I would be much more concerned with a fox or cat defecating on my vege plot than the applying of a well sourced rotted down manure from a vegan/vegetarian animal feeding the soil.

Can you post a picture of the flower when it opens and an up close one of the upper surface of a  leaf as it will make it easier to give a good id?

The only reason I can think of is the weather we've had. It has upset a lot of plants this year. There have been quite a few threads about different plants/trees not fruiting this year - such a shame.Next year ....hopefully!
