How's Your Garden Doing?Tuesday, August 24, 2010
I just love the Impatiens (most probably a Walleriana variety) that's in the centre of a planter in my garden. It has grown so big in just a month. On the left is another Impatiens, of the red/white dwarf variety, and on the right is a fuschia New Guinea. I just couldn't prune the centre one yet as the flowers are still blooming profusely... sort of like 'over-powering' the rest!
Below was how they were like one month ago...
It's such a joy to see this gerbera flower opened. I picked up this dwarf African Daisy (Gerbera) from a nursery in May at a very reasonable price since only one miserable flower was left on the plant. Later it has bloomed a few more flowers. But none of them was as big as this one :-D
The pic below shows how the plant was at the nursery in May...
Amaranthus Flying Colours plants were not very pleased with the prolonged rain. They have withered away quickly a week ago. They showed its beautiful colours for about one month only. Its lifespan from seed was just about three months.
Finally, my Guzmania foliage is taking on another colour in the centre of the rosette. And Hydrangea started to flourish its first flower buds. I can't wait to see their flowers! I have been growing them for about one year already.
These are some updates from my garden. So how is your garden doing lately?
