When are the seeds ready. What do I look for ?
When my son was 3 ( he's 44now) his mother was washing him in the kitchen sink, nothing unusual about that I don't think. When my mother noticed something on his little bum; she pulled and pulled and out came a full length lob worm, pink but alive and well. You can't stand over your kids all day long. And a bit of dirt never hurt anyone. My son is living proof.
Wow! I looked it up and it was very intriguing: spies, murder etc. But on another note the book I have: My readers Digest encyclopaedia of garden plants and flowers, 1971 edition gives sowing seeds as the only means of propagation. Is there another method; cuttings perhaps?
Can anyone identify this shrub growing in Corfu, Greece, Thank you.
Swiss Sue, that could indeed be it. I never saw it in flower, it was in Gran Canaria in December. Thank you.
A pool isn't my top priority because I can't swim, but, daft as it seems a boat is! And they cost about the same.
Thank you Dovefromabove. I took Gerald Durrells; Corfu trilogy with me on my recent visit to Corfu It was a lovely read the first time in ages that I have laughed out loud whilst reading. It's one of those books that one can easily read again and again.
Bilje, I have just been on google and I don't think that is it, the pods on the Carob tree hang in bunches. These seemed to hang singly also if I remember correctly the leaves were similar to a Rowan tree, (mountain Ash).
Can anyone identify a tree from which I have the seed pod. I took it from a tree outside my apartment in; Gran Canaria many years ago. It is about 6 inches long and resembles a large pea pod. I still have it it sounds like a type of marracca? ( spelling) musical instrument!
Thank you very much.Another one of lifes' mysteries solved. Sorry about the spelling of; himalayan. At least I was half right. Thank you again.
