taro tubers and plants
Would anyone going to Belvedere like to try Colocasia.
Colocasia is a tender aroid grown for its leaves.
As per previous journals, I have grown 'Colocasia' successfully from taro tubers which are for sale in Chinese food stores. I believe it is the sale plant.
Hubby was in Dublin today and picked up a handful of tubers for 21c each. Although these ones have no buds, they are firm so should grow.
If anyone would like to try one, please let me know.
Too busy for much gardening today but I did a good bit of sowing - half a tray of Coleus and 1/2 a tray of Orlaya grandiflora (thanks Krista), tray each of Cosmos 'Picotee', Helichrysum, Well Behaved Plant, Lobelia Tupa and China Asters (pink - thanks Olga).
