HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Pat, I've asked him for the botanical name of his 'Lilac Indulgence' or whatever he says it's called  


Hosta ((hugs))  remember who your friends are when you come into your well-deserved wealth won't you? 


I've never had an email telling me I've won a fortune 


Last time I had a phone call about my car accident I asked for all their details 'cos obviously someone had stolen my car and I'd have to contact the police and the chap on the phone would be called to give evidence  ......  long silence then the line went dead 

Fig Tree leaves turning yellow

Posted: Today at 09:29


If the leaves turn yellow in the summer it's usually due to lack of watering.


At this time of year autumn is the most likely reason for colour change and leaf fall - but my fig leaves aren't changing colour yet   I'm still watering mine at least twice a week.

What is this plant type?

Posted: Today at 09:20

Well, it's not a Calluna vulgaris http://dpipwe.tas.gov.au/Documents/Heather_CRC_wmg.pdf


Lilac Indulgence sounds lovely , but what sort of plant is it?


It must have a botanical name consisting of its Genus and species, then 'Lilac Indulgence' will be its varietal name.


e.g. Solanum lycopersicum is the tomato's botanical name, there are lots of varieties such as 'Gardener's Delight', Alicante', 'San Marzano'.


Without the full name we don't know what sort of plant it is

Pat, I've told Joseph that it's not Calluna vulgaris and suggested that he looks at your suggestion.

Morning Chicky 


Bright and dry here at the moment but there are thundery showers forecast. I'm going to pop up to the farm shop later - I wonder if I'll go into the GC and get more bulbs ? 

What is this plant type?

Think you're mistaken there Joseph. It's not Calluna vulgaris ( the common heather growing all over Scottish moorlands and many other parts of Great Britain. The flower shape is all wrong as is the size of flower and leaf.


Have a look at Pats suggestion, she is a very knowledgable Australian botanical artist.
