In me garden, there is a ten feet high,
seven wide Bouganvillea, in the left side of the west garden of the house. Most of the branches decided to grow towards the south side supported by wires.
Now, the shade is dominant in a space
previously exposed to heat and sun. The new situation allows yours truly to recreate the garden as necessary.
Eucharia, Caledium, Aloe Vera, Crinum, Anthurium, Alocasia cuculata, Chrysotemis pulchella, Diffenbachia and Oxallis are now in the premises. That is one part of the story.
The other required pulling out a six feet Citrus sinensis growing somewhat a la espalier. The leaves had plenty of white flies sprayed with my home made remedy. This 3 year old from seed is now in a rubber liner under observation.
The Aloe vera, is one of the plants found when we moved. It was in the north side until yesterday. In its place there are two, Brunfelsia pauciflora and a variegated Pedilanthus Tithymaloides. As you may have noticed, the movement went clockwise from north to south. Every juan relocated, looks cool, except the Citrus, rather sad and all wrinkled.
That is that. Apaga i vamonos.

Its always fun to have an excuse to try something new in the garden.ReplyDelete
An espaliered citrus sounds like a really cool idea!
