Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 28/09/2015 at 22:41

I´ve got tons of Mina lobata seeds (said it somewhere else), and a few Abutilon hybridum pink, if someone  would like them.

What could be this plant

Posted: 27/09/2015 at 15:58

Chayote is a very rampant climber. Anyway, the plant doesn´t look much like

papaya either (this has broader leaves).

Fragrant plants

Carnations, pinks and sweet williams are easy to grow from seed, and usually

very low budget.

My heliotrope Marine grown from seed only gives scent on very warm days (and

specially in very warm evenings...).

Mix orchid compost with some sand, works well with Kalanchoe.

Oriental Chrysanthemum

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 13:58

The plant is Glebionis coronária (formerly Chrysanthemum coronarium).

Check at Thompson & Morgan and Chiltern, where they have the double varieties.

Suttons has it under the "veg" section, as the plant is edible.

One of a kind... or not?

This lily bloomed from a former year´s bulb, only one flower sadly, but with

tem petals (and 12 stamens). I wondered if two flowers merged into one, or is

it a doubling process ongoing? (in the later case I could try make it seed, and

propagate, what do you think?)


Plant ID please!

Kalanchoe kalandiva, a tender perennial (you can propagate it in a greenhouse

through the leaves - a long journey!, or through the small growings along the stem).
