Arisaema, Galtonia & Nerim oleander

A lazy day all in all.

We got the final two tree ferns down and I got the stones cleared from the hill. Then the rain set in.

My Arisaema griffithi is looking good int he greenhouse and my Lilium nepalense has poked its nose up : )

Cant wait to see the end result with the tree ferns Rachel, they'll enjoy a little rain..

Thanks, Bill. There's a new photo in the album but obviously it's not the end result yet.

Hope all is well with you and please let me know if there's anything I can do. Hope you will be back soon.

My L.nepalnense still sleep.How you gonna do Rachel,you will leave it in pot,or will plant it out?

Rachel Rachel 13 May 2010 23:22:37

I might bury the pot in the ground, Liga, so I can lift it easily. What will you do? I am not sure my bulb is flowering size so I may have to wait for next year for flowers. I had the pot in the house and moved it to the greenhouse about a week ago - maybe that's why mine is ahead of yours. Monkells grew nepalense last year and it flowered magnificently for her. I wonder what she did.
