Yesterday I was repotting plants,included in the group were the seedling brugs that I started in June.I started looking at them all and counted the brugs. I HAVE 20!!!!(6 are seedlings,10 are rooted cuttings) I can't beleive it. Of course not a single bloom on any of them right now, but how did I accumulate so many???I hope my DH doesn't deceied to count them,I gotta keep them spread out so it's not so obvious.Plant lights in the spare bedroom are a must now !!Gotta bring the plants in the house next month.Plus I'm trying to get more...I'm ill,how many of you are suffering from this dibilitating disease???

Arlene,PC was doing great till my peacocks spotted it.They do this thing where they wander thru the gardens and snip things - they don't care what.They sniped all the tips off my calla lilies so now they all look silly,they had snipped all my seedlings except for the 6 I saved by hiding them.Well ,they spotted something they hadn't snipped and added another "notch on their beak" but they only snipped one shoot,I rescued it before they finished it off.I have it hidden in the begonias and its doing well.I love it so much.Can't wait till it gets big enough to have in the open.

too few and too many...too few of those I want to hybridize with and too many of those I don't want to hybridize with. Hope to get a few more out though so I can clear a lil yard space...seeds are going to go bad here soon...

with the addition of the 4 cuttings I got today (thank you thank you!!) and the 2 HHG I'm buying that will be here next week, I've got 54. Now 75% of them are cuttings, but they're still all mine!!!! And I fully expect to have many more, I'm hooked but good. Don't know what hubby is going to say when we start bringing them in. He knows, I've told him over and over, but I don't think he's realizing ... yet ;)
btw, I started the last week of May, does that tell you I'm obsessed or not??

Mz, I have a small circle around an oak tree comprised of 30 or so Brugmansia hybrids...A bench in the center where one can sit and enjoy the fragrance and an arbor at the entrance between the Double white and the Isabella pink. I made a basic circle pattern with colors rotating everyother one and species rotating as well. Of course I have the straight line motif going along side the house as well and another circle pattern at a friends house I planted for them. Not to mention a few lines at their house as well facing each other so one walks down the path with brugs on either side...then of course I have the corn rows filled with my hybrids...And everyone I have sent my babies too...well I can only dream about their setups and how beautiful their houses and or greenhouses are going to be...neighbors complaining they can't smell the roses in their yard...
