On Sunday Nikki was telling us that she loves all the shapes and shades of pink and showed us no less than twelve of her wonderful pink roses in pinknesses, whilst yesterday the Galloping Gardener was In the pink!
Martin, a one-time Sunday morning helper at the trading shed, has very kindly given me a large pot containing some Nerine bowdenii. I know little about these plants but found this informative blog post Not only pink, part 3: Nerine bowdenii.
It seems that although they are hardy and don’t mind cold dry winters they don’t like wet ones. I’m going to keep mine in the pot for the time being so that I can move it into Joe’s greenhouse if need be. You’ll note that it has plenty of leaves, which appear after flowering, so it looks like I’ll have to wait until next autumn to see it in the pink!
Have a good weekend!
