Well......

I was periodically checking the green thumbs forum and then noticed no one was posting in there any more.

Feeling like the nerdy kid who gets picked last.

Been very busy this year and haven't had much time to post pics and participate. Hopefully I will have more time later this fall.

Will have to sit with a coffee and catch up

And yes, it is almost time to start bringing in the all our sensitive plants. Have more flowers coming on my brugs.

Sorry to read that you have had to scurry with your plants already.
But glad to see that you had help.

I still have a couple of weeks to go before I have some time off work, which I booked to do this task.

My greenhouse is not useable right now as I continue to rebuild it.

I am throwing myself at the mercy of Mother Nature.

It's "only" going to 9 C tonight, but I have taken pity on my Brugs and husb. put them in the greenhouse, all two of them. One is loaded with buds, the other zilch.

The Daturas came into the house night before last...one flower, lots coming.

I'm glad you found your way here...we've missed you.

I dont know if people will notice this request, but I would like to know how to get these two old recaltricent plants to flower now that I have followed directions on overwintering. The Brug is over 20 years old, and has never flowered but once in the 14 years I have lived here. The Datura I started from seed two years ago, and it has not flowered either. Both are getting some fish water from the pond cleaner pump thingy, and 20 20 20; the Dat is a bit chlorotic on older leaves. Any advice on site conditions and treatments? THey are both multibranched and reasonably healthy. I did as Lulu and all others have directed here for over wintering. Some discussion of getting to actually flower would be most appreciated. So far reminding them that the compost pile is only 20 feet away has not been heeded. Its 34 degrees and sunny here now.

Sorry Kat, no idea. I am praying/hoping for two of mine to grow tall and bloom...one overwintered indoors, one new buy in spring. I feed lots of Tomato (and veg.) food. Lots of water. Full burning hot sunlight. "old" one just over two feet tall, new one insists on growing sideways, not as tall." Maybe pots are too close to overtowering tomato, and an eggplant???

Wishing you every success.
