Re: small space gardener pictures

Thats not for me to say Blake,

I just meant your garden must be huge to accomadate so many plants.

I love your choices though.

Later, I will be looking through your posts and see which seeds I would like but not yet for a while.

Re: small space gardener pictures

Blake, your plants are stunning! Holy Moses, I am astounded by your grounds - didn't realize you had so much.


Excessive?!!! You're asking me?!!!


: O


Not at all - I love it, so keep it coming! Beautiful, Blake. The pond is awesome!



Glad you saw my album, Katalina. I might re-do my album and post more recent growings later...

Re: small space gardener pictures

Blake, Do you get seeds from your tripocal hibiscus? I would like to find someone with tropical hibiscus seeds to trade. Please send ma a PM if you have tropical hibiscus seeds and are interested in trading them.

Re: small space gardener pictures

runningtrails,
No I dont have any hibiscus seeds, look at my thread here (Click). When they do make one the seed pods turn yellow and fall off. If I did have seeds I would be hapy to share.


Heres an update on my Musa basjoo banana:
