Catching Up on Fertilizer Friday

 For the first time ever this post actually has something to do with fertilizer!  Imagine that!

So… on May 21st I took this photo of my brugmansia.  I didn’t have high hopes for it.  The 3 that I have were mere twigs and just behind schedule IMHO.

So with the passage of a few weeks and lots of water and fertilizer…July 1 Brugs
I am hopeful!

A day or two ago I posted about my 2 newly acquired hibiscus plants.  One is pink but the other was not tagged so the color is a mystery.

But the proverbial “cat will be out of the bag” in a couple of days.   A flower is ready to pop!

And to everyone back home…..

I’m linking to Tootsie’s Fertilizer Friday.  Pop on over for more garden beauties.

Ooo, keep us posted on your rooting projects. I would love to see how they grow for you. I'm going to be taking cuttings myself soon from my Mom's house and bringing some plants here. I hope they come out as well as yours are doing.

Hope you have a happy Canada Day!

love brugs also, they are so effortless, they don't die down here in the winter so they get larger and fatter!

Your header is just gorgeous-what a shot! Your brugs and hibiscus look healthy; just a matter of time!

Looks like you have the touch or green thumb I should say. I too, love hibiscus. Killed mine a few years back trying to move it. I have been sorry every since.
