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).

If anyone is interested, my Spanish flag produced myriads of seeds, and I

keep them in my fridge for eventual "new dads".

(Obviously) a variegata, perhaps 'Sunningdale' ?

Thanks for the replies. Both young heliotropes and delphiniums don´t actually get

any direct sunlight for the moment, perhaps there´s the problem. This darkness

in my garden might be the cause for soooo many maladies. But oy, that´s something

I can´t heal...

My heliotropes and delphiniums often suffer from these black stains + deformed

leaves. I thought they were mite attacks (as it is usual in my garden), but my lovely

poison (cypermethrin) does not  have great effect on these. Can anyone help?


Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

In the past I planted lots of them: glorious foliage forever, only one bloomed very

poorly. Bought a potted one months ago, and it is still blooming, but the people

in the nursey might have used some trick to make it flower.

Do sweet williams need a cold winter to flower?

What´s in a rose?

That´s the point. Roses are hybrids from many species, and it seems that

traditional hybrid tea roses all have young red leaves. So my new ones are

NOT hybrid teas, but hybrids of another sort (knows not what).
