Grevillea pick of the crop.

funnelwebApril 10, 2014

Just another grevillea, this one, 'Pick of the crop' I bought mail order from Garden Express about 6 months ago and it has just now progressed to its first flower. Foliage is a bit prickly but looks like the flower will make it worth the effort.

Thank you Inga, a fellow gardener in Vancouver (Vancouver Island) tells me spring is just around the corner, though it's still pretty cool.

Vancouver Island is always a little ahead of us.
We still have pockets of snow hiding in the shade, but I discovered the first snowdrops, primula and a Christmas rose in the park. We do have lots of sunshine, but still a little cool.

Must be lovely to glimpse those first signs of new life after a harsh, white winter, inga. I still miss snowdrops, I use to grow them in Sydney (800 kilometres south) before we moved to where we now are - Sydney winters were just cold enough to enjoy them.

I, really like the colour and form of thr Grevilleas-alwas nice to see.I have purchased quite a few plants from the aforementioned
fiirm and generally happy. I see some of the little star flowers starting to appear along with othe bulbs-silly inst it?. My Kangaroo Paws look ok but a wait and see how they go in the shade and heavy soil.
happy Easter and hot cross buns to all

Ummm, the K. Paws, Chas, really don't like too much shade and certainly not heavy soils; sandyish, well drained is their natural growing medium. Anyway, lets know how they go.
