    A wander round the garden. The grass is an ongoing project, to be re-sown in October :redface:cercis.jpgloropetalum.jpgpalmier.jpgpond.jpg :phew:

          Thank you Victoria :) The tunnel is just a third remaining of where we stored everything during the renovation. I like to grow enough of everything to be able to give it away :biggrin: Lemon grass, kaffir limes and coriander go down well now that Thai food is becoming more popular here. I'm working on the coconuts :roflol:

            The leptospermum is unusual, how big are those flowers ?

              @noisette47 your plants are lovely!

              I'm sorry about the pink lighting but it is what works best for indoor growing.

              I am getting very anxious for warmer weather as I am running out of room down there and the one greenhouse with heat is pretty much loaded too.

              The tropical seeds are ones I ordered. The rest of the plants are from collected seeds.

                      @pete, forgot to mention that my flash on my phone doesn't always work and my tablet doesn't have one... now, I guess it makes sense why I left them on pink mode :)

                        Probably comes as a surprise when you take them out into the daylight and see what they really look like.:biggrin:

                            Is it? They're pretty common here, double red, white and pink. The individual flowers would be about 2cm, nearly an inch.

                                I don't know whether it would come true from seed, but Burncoose reckon they're easy from cuttings. I'll bung some in for you in case a James Bond type can smuggle them over to you :biggrin:
