Green Fingers

One of Karen's many hobbies is growing plants from seed.  I thought I would post a bit about what she does. She also loves bonsai plants and has tried a few of these. It is so difficult to grow these and she has lost a few - but perseverance is her middle name and she keeps trying.  This one is called crassula sarcocaulis it is an evergreen and these lovely pink flowers appear in the late summer. It is such a pretty little thing and appears to be going strong. (My goodness this sounds like I know what I am talking about but I just read it off the label.)   

Scots Pine

 The Scots pine she grew from  seeds she found outside.  She has quite a few of these growing and they seem to be doing really well, she must be thinking of growing her own forrest with the amount she has got started. The Acer she bought as a very small plant and it also seems to be doing well, I think she was hoping to bonsai them once they are more established.  I don't know where she gets her green finger from - certainly not me. Remember the lavender I bought and carefully potted. Well I got up this morning and this is what I found. My pot had smashed - no explanation other than the plant saying help!! Now I'll need to go and get another pot at the weekend and hope that the plant survives that long. Maybe I should just let Karen look after it. What do you think?

I'm no good at gardening either. I just take pics of other people's flowers! Your pink flower photo is lovely.

Frost damage probably from a hairline crack that was already in the pot. Pot feet are great for helping to protect pots. It's better to get shrubs out of bellshaped ones as you can hardly get the plant out of them in years to come as the root ball becomes bigger than the top of the pot. Ha haa can you tell that I speak from experience :)

I think I would beg Karen to take over....I can grow stuff outside but have no luck with inside plants.
