I have propagated a few pots of aoenium, the green and the black. They are all in pots at the moment. I am not sure where to place them or if I should plant them in the ground. Still planning and designing my flower patch in front of the living room windows and in front of the garage.
Love the beautiful architectural look.
My passionfruit panama red right out of our garage has survived attacks by slugs. It is now very green and growing. Got to figure out the supports soon because it is starting to climb.
The other passionfruit panama red is looking dreadful. The one above used to look like this after planting, so I am hopeful that this one will make it too. It is next to my front patio where lavender avon view used to be.
New artichoke green globe plants growing where the original plant is. Yeah!
I have protected my precious eggplant florianda with plastic. Feel so good after doing this job because I dont want my frost-tender plants to die!
Ermm...due to the mad weather, the jonquils under the plum tree emerged. Wonder what the result would be...
I have got calendulas growing here, along the fence behind the plum tree, next to the water tank. This is a very shady area and the soil is bad. Even though there is a layer of old weed mat underneath, the seeds germinated and are growing. I dont mind having calendula growing here to add some bright yellow colours. It has been a boring area and weeds easily grow here. Might as well have calendulas!

How exciting! I am totally over the moon as if I have struck lottery. That was how my hubby described me. My Carolina Black Rose Grape vine is alive! I found 3-4 green buds on it. A while ago, it looked like a dried forked twig and I have sort of lost hope that it would live. I will have to fertilise it and plan the support soonest, oh as well as protection against my golden retriever Marco. The pomegranate, which I have no clue about its name, is putting on beautiful red leaves. I plan to spray it with a mixture of pyrethrum and white oil in case of white flies or scale attack as last seasons.
I have propagated two pots of Aoenium. As I am clearing up more planting areas with my lawn revamp, I may need new plants.
Planted a little pot of coriander here in Patch C after the seeds germinated.
Most of the seeds - kang kong (water spinach), chilli padi, tomato silvery fir, cucumber, bittermelon - I have planted and pots kept in this plastic container (to imitate greenhouse environment) have germinated. It has been a really cold spring start and they are growing very very slowly. I wish I have a glass or green house to speed up things.
