Streptocarpus - Cape Primrose

Yes Philippa, I have already earmarked that leaf and plan to do some propagation in the spring.  Do the flowers just die back and then all you have is leaf for a while?

Why do you want to get rid of them as they look gorgeous. 


Streptocarpus - Cape Primrose

Posted: 16/11/2014 at 13:41

I bought a streptocarpus (I always think this sounds like a throat infection) cape primrose last month and it has been flowering beautifully.  I notice that there are no more buds forming so am guessing that it has a rest period coming up. Is there anyone who has one of these and can advise me about its life cycle.


Average Spend in garden centre

How about getting a job in a garden centre first just to get the feel of it - part time on a Saturday perhaps if you already have a full time job..  One of our forum members posted recently that they had just got a job (managerial in think) in a garden centre and it was his 'dream job' as he loved gardening so much. 

new job

Congratulations on getting such a lovely job Dannyboy.  I wish you all the best.  I am sure your enthusiasm will filter through to the rest of your colleagues and on to your customers.

What's left for us to grow?

What is the connection of your forum name Verdun?  I have noticed with the WW1 interest at the moment there was a big battle at Verdun.  Tick me off if I am being too nosy

Oil of Olay used to be called Ulay and it smelt a lot nicer than now.

And yes Zoomer it is a blessing that I don't like the smell or taste of chocolate.  If I really have to eat chocolate (like being lost on a mountain with no food) I would eat plain or white chocolate.

Although I bake my own bread I can't stand the smell of it.  And the same with strawberries as I love the taste but can't stand the smell....a bit odd.

And someone earlier mentioned WD40 which I like in small doses.

And I also don't like the smell of chocolate................
