Garden Glimpses #2

Marigolds are great plants for brightening up any garden. Easy to grow, they will continue to flower for months.  Deadhead frequently to ensure continuous blooming, collect and dry the spent flowers and you can sow fresh seeds next year.

This ornamental bird cage, too small to house birds, is ideal for planting some succulents.

Ideal for containers, baskets and gardens, our white Euphorbia always seems to be in flower.
Easy to propagate by carefully removing a rooted section and replanting, these pretty little plants will soon fill a bare space in the garden.

More Succulents

Echeveria form into rosettes which, when planted, multiply to form a nice display. They are a thick-leaved low growing succulent and grow well in full sun and need little water.  This pink Kalanchoe has pretty double flowers and nice shiny dark green leaves.

Having a Jade plant near your front door is supposed to bring money into your house!  Our Jade plant always looks welcoming on our front verandah. These brilliant succulents, Euphorbia – Medusa’s head, Chalk Sticks and Crassula Ovata – blue bird, propagated by my sister are very decorative and need little water.
