Autumn Clean Up

A SOUTH AFRICAN FIRE LILY, A CYRTANTHUS ELATUS CROSS, NOW FULLY OPEN, LOOKS EVEN NICER THAN IT DID TWO WEEKS AGO. IT VIRTUALLY GLOWS ON AN OVERCAST NOVEMBER DAY.

THE GREENHOUSE BED IS NOW CLEANED OUT AND RAKED ( BANANA'S AND NICOTIANA WERE HERE), NOW, I THINK I WILL DISPLAY BONSAI HERE. STILL NEED TO FIND SOMETHING BETTER THAN CONCRETE BLOCKS.
ROSEMARY PLEACHED HEDGE BEING TRAINED IN A WINDOW BOX, NOW GETTING READY TO BE MOVED INTO THE GREENHOUSE FOR THE WINTER.

IN THE GREENHOUSE, ROMULEA AND OTHER SMALL SOUTH AFRICAN BULBS ARE MOVED TO AN UPPER BENCH, CLOSER TO THE GLASS  TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE AUTUMN SUNSHIINE.

  1. Your Fire Lily is absolutely stunning, Matt. What a wonderful gift from nature on gloomy Autumn days!

  2. I must have one (or a dozen) of those African Fire Lilies. I've never seen them in the shops, or noticed them in peoples gardens, but they should grow like weeds around here. I just wish these bulbs would bloom more than once...
