well the original plant certainly does count, for an herbaceous plant to live over 100 years is epic!

wow those are some tough plants.

Funnily enough I recently moved a Cyclamen Hed. the Corm was only about the size of my Palm though.

Hi all after seeing the oldest houseplant thread, I was wondering what your oldest garden plants are?

I think we can exclude trees and shrubs as they tend to live a long time anyway, although feel free to add one if you think its old enough

Favourite garden task?

Taking photos throughout the year to compare and admire during the dark months

Orchids.

the many Orchids you see at the supermarket are Phaleanopsis

They like growing on bark of trees in the wild in very humid conditions

The roots need light and they to get the best flowering you should let them become very rootbound.

A tray of pebbles underneath that is kept moist helps too

If you see any roots protruding from the top of the pot, leave these alone, they are feeding the plant

I love the hues at this time of year. Everything is so subtle, shame it doesnt last all that long.

One of these visited me while I was pruning my Lavender on the 1st October. Never seen anything like it before, was wonderful to watch how graceful it was
