Camellia sinensis (tea)
I thought I would just give you an update on how my proposed tea plantation is progressing : )
Hubby decided he wanted to grow tea this year, although it will not be harvest-able year one and probably has to be over-wintered indoors.
Anyway, we got and sowed the seeds on 16th January. They did take a long time to germinate and then seemed to grow ever so slowly. I think we have about 7 plants out of 10 seeds so far, the one in the photo being the most advanced.
So, just another three years to the Tea Plantation : )
