Thanks for a picture of Lady Katherine. I've seen it offered but didn't know it was double. If you ever have extra water rooted cuttings let me know. I'll gladly send postage.

You brugs are splendid, Saba!

My bruggies are really not appreciating the extra hot, humid summer that Mother Nature sent us this year.
For a while, it looked like it was going to be a good year for them, but by now, I'm just hoping that I can get most of them through in good enough shape to try again next year.

Same here, same here, after rainy and almost freezing spring, mid and upper 90*s from mid June till now with little to none rain and terrible humidity.
No, no, I do not complain still love summer here, few more weeks of heat and 6 months of winter will come, brrrr.
Watering 3 times a day, feeding at sunrise weekly, all look almost cooked.
I appreciate my beauties for trying so hard to survive and showing off theyer blooms, not as pretty as past years but still.

Anyway, remind me in mid/late fall, will see what I can do for you.
Your yellow is so pretty , btw do you feed your brugs regularly? it help a lot with blooming and the size of flowers too.

Saba, all your brugs are so beautiful. Mine did not bloom well at all this year like last year. It's still in the mid nineties here, just miserable and nothing is doing well. Enjoying the trip through your beautiful garden.

Don't have a Brug. How do these propagate? Seeds or cuttings? Anyone would like to swap for Loguat tree seedlings?

Thanks zuzu, beavercreek.
bali - just trimming if necessary
Oodazma - both, seeds and cuttings but cuttings are easier and faster to grow and you get exactly the same color as mother plant

Cold, windy and rainy here but thankfully not freezing yet.
All my bruggies lined up ready to move any day for winter storage after I get a chance to spray for bugs.

Pics from yesterday, still lots of blooms and flower buds, unfortunately they will all drop.

















This one I grew from seeds I bought on line last year and surprise, surprise, pure white, not what I payed for, guess will be NOID from now on and no more buying on line for me from unknown seller.


Thank you for looking.

Take your pick bali, I'll be using the blue one with garden hose connection because I have a lot to spray, check your neighborhood store for hand spray bottle or something similar and make sure spider mites is listed.
