My first seeds came from Susan,at Simply Susan – thank you for these beauties.
Previously,they had been planted in dappled shade.
They bloomed ok…
but just that.
Oh,I got seeds,
and they sprouted,
but it was just ok…..
When TheTree went down,they were dug up and stored in pots,until the pool was finished.
Now,they are in full sun.
I worried,at first,that it would be too much sun for them.
But I was wrong.
Now,they are all close to five feet tall.
Standing straight and true.
No flopping over allowed here….
And the flower scapes have started.
Today,I found the first of what should be many blooms.
Thank you again,Susan.
B is for Brown Fig, ficus carica
Having always wanted a fig tree,I bought a Brown Fig tree last fall,
with hopes it would make it.
It has performed so-so.
Just when I was ready to chalk it up to a lesson learned,and ripping it out,I found this….
My first fig!
and the only one,but who’s counting?
I think it can hang around a little bit longer….
B is for…
You didn’t think I’d go this long without a picture of Miss Emma,did you?
