Worked hard today

Got the in ground plumie patch ready & a few guys lined up.
Going to plant the oldest unbloomed trying to catch an inflo.

think I'll do 4 rows across

Boy they will be happy

Going to add on another 3 foot border on my patio.

Idea is to get rid of the grass lay down weedbarrier cloth & cover it with lava rock.

Will end up with a 12 by 18 ft area.

Hey if you look closely you can see the guys in the center garden in the background

Added a few more to a border

Ha

:P

There are a few with curves. Most are seedlings & I train them when young if they get out of hand

:P

When they branch though they are on there on & I think most of them grow straight after branching with no help.

Could be yours are cuttings from mature trees which can have very gangly weird shapes depening on what part of the tree they grew at.

These were both supposed to be seedlings of Gulf Stream
One on the left has bloomed white like Madison White

Both have a curving growth habit despite my training but they have a nice style.

Might air root the one on the right as it branched at a very young age & it just weird
Also the one on the left could be airroot & cut on that right side & made 2 plants.

Thanks, they ae spaced pretty close but its not a permanent spot
maybe a year or two just trying to get them to bloom.


I plan on taking them out in say October to allow them a month to get back established in a pot.

I just sprinkled some water on top to level the soil
I'll give them a day or two to get adjusted them water with some rooting hormone & a booster.

Here are 8 4yo's finally got a 3 gallon a few weeks ago
3 years in a pint w never a complaint
I feel so bad but last year they got a gallon & now 3 gal
Its pandemonuem around here
everyone is so happy to finally have room to grow

Also 3 rooted cuttings of my Samoan Fluff seedling tree in gallon

Ms Red is still going strong
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/2271/msred7302011.jpg

Added on another few rows of paver stones as they were on sale & cheaper than rock.
So made a compromise
got a solidee paved area in excess of 17 wide & 9 feet deep
so practically 9 by 18 & have room for lots of seedlings now

Also got 4 shelved racks to help out so plumies are going to love it.

Gets sun from 9 to 5 pm
ouch

Dwarf singapore pink seedlings

Three weeks & surprise some good size inflos.

Heres the happy gang Gardenia G GG & Mardi Gras MGr unbloomed 6 yo have inflos as well as my Big Samoan Fluff which has 2 inflos

http://img803.imageshack.us/img803/3903/seedlingsground842011.jpg
circle indicate inflo areas

thinking of adding on another 4 x 10 foot in ground section on the right side of the garden to mirror image the left but I'm not sure how that area will be in the winter when the sun is behind the neighbors cyprus

More work & its hot but this should really finish things

That MS REd Rainbow Even the Ms pink is a dark pink now with the heat but still having a hard time capturing the colors

http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/7971/msreddarklavendar84.jpg

these guys have been waiting years to get repotted & they never complained

Marmalade is starting to color up
Got it on the balcony to enjoy

Singapore white & Gulf Stream are still blooming

Oh no, More work but this on going project really has turned out to be a thing of complete joy to watch them all finally with room to grow least for a few years

Looking good, Shadow!
You're so lucky to have all that space!
Do you plan to put some covers over the young plants this winter?
