Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – March 2011

March 15, 2011

I’ll say it right away, my heart isn’t really in it today… too busy feeling unhappy and angry and helpless about what’s going on in Japan.

Still, a quick tour around the Nettle Nest:

In the bedroom:

Pelargonium, Abutilon


In the kitchen:

Viola cornuta

On the balcony:

Viola cornuta, Iris reticulata 'Harmony', Crocus 'Blue Pearl'

In the living room:

Dendrobium bigibbum, Clivia miniata

Ceropegia sandersonii

Rhipsalidopsis, Schlumbergera

Don’t forget to head over to May Dreams Gardens for more flowers and bloggers who are in the mood to tell you stories about their flowers.

    Your Ceropegia is amazing. I have the little C. woodi, it is small but a lot of fun. Your houseplants are gorgeous! Most of my indoor gardening is seedlings under lights to plant out when things warm up.

    I don’t know why, but C. woodii has never appealed to me. We have some at work, but I’ve never been tempted to buy them.

    I absolutely love your golden Rhipsalidopsis. Can you tell me where you got it from? I’ve never seen that colour before.

    Probably at Bellaflora, which is a big garden centre chain here in Austria. I’d offer you a cutting, but I don’t have the plant any more, and you’d have to be in the EU anywayfor me to be able to send it.

      well, I’m afraid it’s worse than you think. I’m in Australia and they are REALLY paranoid about letting ANYTHING in. I was actually going to ask if they ever seeded? oh, well. thanks anyway.

        I can see the point of import restrictions, since they’re meant to keep out pests/diseases, but it’s still annoying in situations like this… 😦
