Re: pics for you


Hi Donna

No, not bored with them just wanted to carry something in addition to the hibs. For those who have them already or for those who prefer something else. I really like flowering tropicals...can you tell? I have lots of new stuff coming out on my web site this year. I'm pretty excited by it. Including a scented Hibiscus rosa sinensis. It's a big nice orange/yellow double.

Yes, it's really purple. I am rooting some more now. There are a few purple varieties.

Yes, I will be showing at the SF Flower and Garden and I hope to be in a few others. There really aren't too many that are economical. Most only make money for the promoters.

Yes I did notice the hanging baskets....guess I forgot to mention
it...Sounds like you are branching out to other tropicals- Getting bored
with the hibiscus?

SO are those really purple in color? (she asks again!)

Are you planning on exhibiting at the flower shows again this year?

Hi Donna

Training them to be tree form. Did you notice that some are in hanging
baskets? Some varieties are very upright and make a nice tree form and
others are just as floppy as can be and make a nice basket. For many that
are floppy the flowers hang down and are difficult to see if you in a
conventional pot. These varieties, regardless of the color, would be lost
if some way was not found to display them. I believe that I was, if not
the
first, then the second to make baskets using Hibiscus.

By this summer I will have baskets of other species of Hibiscus,
Bougainvillea and possibly Abutilons as well. Hanging baskets are a great
way to maximize space in a greenhouse as they don't take tablespace. By
the
way, we are also starting to grow four different varieties of Passifloras
and three varieties of Mandevillas. Later on this summer we'll also have
several varieties of Colocassias.

Since this is the first year of the tree form I don't have many of them
and
some nursery in New Jersey just placed an order for about a third of what
I
have.

Geography lesson: I just blew it. I thought this was someplace else. I
just an order from Brunei. Where is Brunei?.
