Another day of sweat & exhaustion in the heat but paved a 6X9 area outside my window so I can watch over my babies.

Now have to take care of the ants that have taken over the area.

Plumeria for me are very forgiving of my smaller pots. If you feed the plant & the mix is right they do almost as well as others in bigger pots.

Would be nice if our J 105 gave us inflos this season.

So far its just my unk pink rainbow that has a inflo.

http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/9894/plumfpam52807.jpg]This was her first inflo.
Sort of lokks like Grove farm but gets more pink & petala get more narrow with heat

Hoping this year will be a good one.

Got a bag of pumice to work into the bed trying to make the soil good for plumeria.
Wonder what others do when they plant a plumeria in ground?

Disappointed w Uni grow as there pumice & cactus mix has changed & is of tiny inferior quality & just not that good anymore
Daunting & challenging as getting the mix just right is not easy.

Anyone use unigrow have any comments?

:unsure:

I noticed that the Unigrow potting soil had quite a bit less pumice in it.

It has much finer pumice & its more like coarse sand almost & I'm worried it will be more dense.

Just when I got the mix figured out they went & changed the formula. It looks like paving sand...

I thinkits just cheaper for them to add crushed pumice that is not as good as the original nice size pumice pearls.

It seems to be more like concrete when its wet & it seems to also have less compost.

I'll have to figure it out before I compromise my plumeris health which have been doing fine in the same mix for 3 years.

Luckily I'm thinking of planting all of my big gutys for the summer & less headache about potting them up.

Your plumie real estate sure looks nice. Looks like some prime property there, I'm sure they will be happy. Keep posting your pictures please.

Got the workmen to trim the nasty neighbors cyprus which shaded my garden for many hours in summer (not so bad)
but also totaly shading it in winter which my plumies were not too happy about

Now I can add more plants to the center west

(Center & West Garden)

I'm thinking of laying shade cloth securing it with pave stones on the border & covering the shade cloth with rock.
Have to see if that would be ceaper than all pavestones which are over $1 ea.

I can add on maybe another 12 feet
Heck thats a real bonus

:P

Some 6 months old ready to go down to the garden as soon as we get some heat

Mid June & its cloudy & cool

:angry:

Still I'm very happy as I have been living in the shadow of that darn cyprus for almost a decade

Spent most of yesterday potting up a frqaction of the gang.

The long awaiting 4 yo's got more root room & have taken a spot on the plumie patio with some of the older gang & some w inflos.

Its filling up but hope not too fast as I have plans to grow out around 100 seedlings

http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/8384/plumiepatio722011.jpg

View from window is sure rewarding to see my gang

Added the other three 4 yo's...everyones all cozy & happy waiting to get more sun tomorrow

http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/7122/plumiepatio732011w84yo.jpg

Not sure whether to plunge or plant.
really would like to finally see all my 6 yo'seedlings bloom
