Re: How about a gardening thread?

If anyone wants home-grown seeds of Mirabilis jalapa (pictured below), please send me your address in a PM. You sow them in spring and get flowers off and on all summer till now. They're a tough customer though - it's no joke that they're nicknamed Four O'Clock (or are they Five O'Clock?!); each flower opens in the evening and stays open till morning, and then it starts to fade and die. They're suitable in a small or medium pot for a sunny window sill (so you can see them bloom at night).

On another note, I have had good experiences ordering online from baldur-garten.ch - I bought a green banana plant, a blueberry plant (enjoyed 24 fat berries), a blue hosta, calla lily Picasso bicolour, a kaffirlime plant and a Christrose plant (for blooming in Dec or Jan).
