Lyn, I saw very beautiful yellow bogas at the nursery yesterday, they were those that are already growing huge on a wooden vine, is that how one calls it? So many of them, I was so tempted to take them home but since we've already bought so many bogas last week, had to exercise some self control for the time being with bogas :) However we did bring back 2 honey tangerine, 2 surinam cherry trees and 1 double knock out red rose bush screaming at us to take them home :) "Where are you going to put them?" --- No worries, we'll find a place for them by 'hook or by crook'... haha :)
Lila, the leaves seems healthy. I don't see any curls on the leaves but what does shiny trails mean Lila? It is a new term for me :) I forgot to mention that these are new batches of bogas just bought from the nursery and got transplanted into the ground last week. Some of them lost their flowers, some still keeping their....but I have yet to feed them.
I bought 2 new Bambino Bougainvilleas yesterday (husbands voice in background, what are you doing with those, where are you going to put them??) Plus today whilst in Woolloomooloo in City I spotted a bright yellow bougainvillea and took 2 cuttings that I will split into 4 and hope at least one propagates. I took photo of the vine and will post later on my page.
Mine don't get fed any commercial fertilisers, just worm wee/tea or the diluted juice from my Boakashi waste bin.
Thanks Lila and Lyn :) Can I get some advice from both of you...what if I've already pruned the bogas and they're still not exploding/blooming like they should, kind of slow, like their growth is stunted, do you know what else I can do to help them out? Thanks :)
Thanks for the tip Lila :) I've taken your advice and have been pruning off the tips of each branch of the bogas, time consuming but I guess that's what's for the love of gardening is all about :) Oh yes, we're in the same state and zone ! :) Nice :)
Yes, it's planted outside, Myan :) This is one of the first two bougainvilleas that I planted last year. At the beginning, the other one (not this one in the pic), did not seem to want to thrive, then I dug it out and re-planted it at another spot where it wasn't shaded and surprisingly it grew so big I had to trim it back just 3 days ago before it gets out of hand :) Does it do well in SC?
Okay it does well in the ground in 9B and 10 zone so I will keep mine in the basket:) I saw this and yours is doing so beautiful*
Do you have this planted outside? I have one in a pot from my hanging basket. Its about to come back outside. I bring in alot of plants in the winter and was not sure how this would do in the cold. You are in Florida so I am wondering your not that far away.
