Friday last week I taught a couple of people to collect, prepare and sew seeds from Ae family and tried to describe collection with Neo’s as well. I am sharing what i know to help others.
Thanks for Identifying Vr Tiger Tim for me. It has a couple of pups on it and it came from Bunnings, the only plant worth buying from that store at that time. Well that is my opinion anyway.
Yes Blade is my Grandson and he is a quiet baby, how could I be so lucky. I expected to have sleepless nights and as yet this is not the case.
Sue I would love to try Ae Blush from seed.
Nev I think the C class loco was fully restored before being parked up. It is in the Miles museum.
Today with the rain and due to the fact that I have been away I thought it time to pot up some seedlings,some Canistrum burchellii, Portea petropoliana var extensa and some unknown Ae that I planted on 24-06-12. Some of these are 4”high so into pots some went, more tomorrow with luck rain or no rain.The weather is the boss until Grandson gives voice.
Have a good one
