Brugmansia - Angel's Trumpet

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 10:08

Ideal.  Too much wind can shred the leaves, so I wouldn't put in a windy spot.

Lorraine, I would go for a repot and a good feed for that. Any tomato fertiliser or miracle gro or phostrogen will help for flowers. The one in the ground had a good bucket full of FYM and some BFB. I'm not expecting this to flower until August.

 Current large plant, planted out for the summer. The roots spread too much for repotting, so the frost will get this one, but cuttings will be taken off it after flowering.

How many frogs?

If you have it in a large pot,you can cut it down like you would prune a buddleja to store it in the spare bedroom, etc.  The bits you cut off ,you can root in water(I use coffee jars) for new plants. I renew on a three year cycle. year 1 cutting grown on in 6 inch pot. year 2 put into largest pot I've got, feed and water and let it flower in pot. Cut down and take cuttings.Year 3 stick it in the ground, let it flower, take cuttings, let the frost have it.

BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 22:42

OH decided he  wanted to climb the  Sydney harbour Bridge on one of our Australia trips. He had a heart attack six months earlier.  I couldn't talk him out of it. I ended up doing it with him.  Lots of ibuprofen next day!!!!!

I like my aeroplane doors firmly shut.

Walking round a garden is much more soothing.
