|It's been a long time since the last time I posted.
I neglected my backyard. Hence, I also neglected my beloved adeniums and plummies.
I had gotten a few cuttings from Mike the year before, and all except two had bloomed for me. Still waiting for the Scott Pratt to bloom!
But like I said, I neglected my pretties; I'm grateful that they're still alive.
The last time I saw blooms was between October and December.
...Then they all went dormant. Only now I started to see new leaves. Even though I got the cuttings around the same time, I have noted differences in height among the plants.
A few weeks ago I got help from a landscaper to help me with my backyard. I know when I have reached my capabilities, both in problem solving (had a pest issue) and also in terms of time. He did a beautiful job. He placed all of the plummies on the ground, as he used something to amend the soil. All the sorry little sticks started to show their leaves shortly after! I'm hoping to see blooms soon.
In the mean time, I'm being mesmerized by all the pictures others in this forum are posting!
Gardening is cheaper than therapy!
Boricua in Florida, I guess that makes me a Floridicua!

| they are the most beautiful neglected plummie blooms. I am on the same boat with you. Only 2 of my 35+ Plummie Sticks & trees bloomed so far.
