Brugmansia - Angel's Trumpet

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 19:56

I have an Angel's trumpet (not sure what colour yet) I was given it last year and it grew very well but never flowered as my darling son kick a football at it. This year it has grown nicely and has lots of new leaves. Over the last week the bottom row of leaves have been wilting and dropping off, it is still growing and throwing out new leaves.

 

I have it in a pot in the bay window of my kitchen by the door, it is a lovely warm and sunny spot even in winter. I am lost as to what to do with it, does anyone have any experience?

 

I shall go and talk a quick pic.

Bees and more bees!

Great picture Gareth. I shall volunteer to count my bees..... if only they would sit still!

Newbie unsure what plant this is

Stunning! I have a much smaller one, it always does me proud.

Thanks Tomsk, I shall try that next time, to be honest I didn't even know the bee was there till the photo was taken. I am however determined to get some action shots now!

They are just amazing! Did you know they quite enjoy being stroked? My children think I am mad, I do it show them they shouldn't run from them!

I think most of my planting is for the bees, I have hundreds of them buzzing round my garden.  I try to get as many photos of them as I can (I am no photographer!) but today I got one coming into land!

Salvia "Hot Lips"

I love my Hot lips! I cut it back as and when I think it needs it, I have no idea if it is correct but it thrives.

Supernoodle, I have this in my garden, it spreads quite rapidly, I tend to keep it in check each spring by removed the outer edges, it seems to work.

 A little work is worth it I think.
