rare blue Bougainvillea

Posted: 27/01/2016 at 19:22

Must have the same genes as the blue strawberry.

Ive seen bougainvilleas from yellow, through peach and coral to purple, but not blue.

Grow in large pots of well drained gritty soil and place in the sunniest position. Bring inside and keep dry for winter.

Did you go to the nutmeg processing place, punkdoc?

I thought it smelt like Sunday mornings. Thats because every Sunday morning, my mum would make egg custard, liberally sprinkled with Nutmeg.  I'm not keen on nutmeg on top of a Pina Colada though..

I would tip out the compost bins with the Jack Russell on standby. Working dogs love a bit of exercise.

How to improve the Trowel?

Posted: 27/01/2016 at 08:43

I want one that doesn't bend where it is attached to the handle. Also a comfy non slip handle. Also a homing device so it doesnt get lost. Last year was a particularly bad year for trowels. One lost, one bent, one snapped.

The white ones are Hymenocallis, also called peruvian daffodil. They are part of the amaryllis family.
