Large white Poppies

Those of you in the Commonwealth have likely grown up with the tradition of the red poppy. Supplied by legions and veteran’s groups for the better part of the last century, the felt, paper or plastic flowers emerge every year to remind generations of people that they owe their very freedoms to the men and women who joined or supported the forces and sacrificed a great deal for future generations. The message has never been about an abject pro-war agenda. Pacifists, anti-war protesters …

To be honest, growing moonflowers in my cool climate isn t easy. I tried for several years before I had success. However, moonflowers are definitely worth the trouble of growing them. Before growing moonflower vines there are a few things you should know. The seeds are poisonous and this vine can become a noxious invader or an invasive in certain areas of the country. It is also a self-seeder, so if you don t want it to return next year, pick off the spent flowers so they don …

I spent yesterday repotting. Like, the entire day. A lot of that time was spent just trying to come up with a list of what needed to be repotted in the first place, or what stuff might need to be repotted but would have to be checked first, or what stuff didn t need to be repotted so much as just divided and as long as I was dividing stuff anyway maybe I should take some cuttings of this thing next to it, and so on and so forth. The actual repotting of things only took maybe a …

I have the Michelia figo which is more shrub-like & blooms in spring/summer, also very fragrant, but smaller flowers.

They are not hard to grow in my experience.Mine gets care similar to my Camelia s & is probabaly at least 20 years old.Chris Pattison …
