Callicarpa profusion flowers

Posted: 15/11/2013 at 00:30

Hi RubyLeaf

The callicarpa you want to ask for at your garden centre is

Callicarpa dichotoma
(Purple beautyberry)

This is the purple one. Actually, the flowers are very insignificant, it's the berries in autumn that are so pretty.

Strange you should say that, no you are not alone, I thought the same too! A bit off, I thought, and I'm not even in the UK!

Remembrance Sunday

I watched the Parade on the BBC today and must admit it brought tears to my eyes to see all those hundreds of service men/women march past the Cenotaph, not to mention all the wounded. I think it's marvelous that the British remember this every year and I realise how very lucky we were to have escaped these terrible times!

Hi there!

Have finally planted my two roses that have been waiting in large pots since Summer. Put a handfull of slow working organic fertilizer in each hole (horn shavings, don't know what that's called in English), so hope they do well. They'll get a dose of horse manure in Spring.

Hope your dinner goes smashingly well, Brumbull and that your guest give you good advice!

I want to grow again

1. Nothing really, have got all the things I like/used to like.

2. Sorry Verd, loathe them, except in their natural habitat on a moor. Too wishywashy for me, I prefer bright colours.

Decisions, decisions, it's a hard life!

Those plants look lovely GG, what a bargain. Nothing as cheap as that here, unless they're already dead or dying!

Evening Brumbull and GG.

Sounds like you've both been busy today. I piddled around a bit this morning and finally got off my chuff late afternoon to dig out the biggest dahlia. It was in a bed where I want to plant a couple of roses, but will do that tomorrow. The dahlia tuber is almost a foot across, will have to split it in Spring or take cuttings.

Sorry your offer wasn't accepted Brumbull, will you up it a bit?
