On question - I am branching out


Thank you
I would like the Eranthis to self seed, so I've have kept Eranthis cilicicia and hymenalis in separate parts of the garden as I understand they can cross pollinate to produce a sterile hybrid.
I do like silver leaved Plants. I have several shrubby ones. Convolvulus cneorum, Curry Plant, Brachyglottis, sort of grey/silver.
I have an edging of silver leaved Cyclamen hederifolium, all from the one original bought plant. I don't understand why the seeds germinate on top of the corm, that's not a good survival strategy, waiting for me to pick them out.

KLAHANIE, if you look carefully at my pic, on the right is a black pipe of my auto timed water system. (Waters all my conservatory plants). It comes on once a week in the winter for 20 mins but the nozels are turned right down on the Orchids so get only about 100ml. I do however give a cup of water with a few drops of bloom feed about once a fortnight. (Water on Wednesdays, feed on Fridays)
In summer they get watered perhaps 3x a week in their hanging tubs outside, till the water runs out of the holes round the bottom edge. (The Orchid compost dries out so rapidly)
Yes, AMY, do show us a pic when your Orchid flowers. What a nice gift to remember them by.
