Calla lillies

I have had that type in the boggy area at the edge of the pond. I found that if I left them in over winter, with a mulch, they were slow to start in the spring. I started lifting them, and just plunging the pot for the summer.

A pump circulating through a filtration system with a uv sterilising light will do the job.

I just chuck in a handful of FBB and stir it up. You don't replace all the soil in your garden every year, do you?

Does anyone grow plumeria?

I have to say, in winter all the leaves fall off and they look pretty boring. When they flower in the spring they are spectacular. around the tropics, there seem to be some that are evergreen.

Mine are still in the pots from last year. They have been under the greenhouse bench all winter. Now they are moving I will increase the water, but still keeping them warm. I won't bring them out until they are well advanced.

any idea on what plant this is?

Mine has got flower buds on. The scent of a lemon tree in flower is absolutely gorgeous.

Once a week will be plenty.

 I would move it up a size pot as well. Repot and add an inch or so of new citrus or ericaceous compost all round.

My friend had them growing in her garden in Perth, Western Australia. they don't flower until they get quite large. She started from a cutting off of a friends ,fairly easy to strike in gritty compost. About five years and five feet to flowering size.

I really love them but unless you have a hothouse I don't think you will get the flowers here.
