As new gardener, Ive am still looking for that certain look most gardeners look for. Some like lots of flowers with no trees or bushes. Some like mostly green. Some like butterflies and birds in thiers.
Well, Im still looking. I know I want a nice full garden with lots of green and bold colors. Reds, blues, purples, oranges, yellows, ,etc. You get the picture.
Im off to a green start! LOL I have a dwarf banana tree thats shooting off pups like crazy.
Because its so warm this week in FL but a hard freeze coming at the end of the week, I ate my Wheeties and got to digging! We had gotten tons of rain this past week so there wasnt dirt on the roots of the banana tree, it was MUD! I got the tree dug out and toppled over but could not get the thing out of the hole! LOL
After getting 90% of the mud off, I was able to pull her out. Right now, she out there drying out. Tomorrow she is off the neighbors yard.
Ok back to the beginning topic....(I tend to rabble)
I have two palms, tons of different types of elephant ears, a beautiful fern tree, ivy, Bird of Paradise, heather , aloe and two roses. Now I have more than that but thats the major stuff.
I have mints that I couldnt kill off if my life depended on it! I forgot about them about a month ago. I thought I had killed them. But nnnnnooooooooo. There they were today! And now, I cant tell them apart! I had three different mints..... I think they have morfed into one!
OK Im rabbling again!
I love ebay! And since its gotten cold, Ive had more time on my hands. So, ebay stocks have gone up thanks to me! LOL
Ive shopped for alot of stuff on there but for some reason, never looked in the gardening section. When I found it, my hubby threated to take my bank card away! LOL We dont use credit cards.
By anywho, last week I bought
Purple Passion Fruit Vine Seeds
Royal Poinciana seed
Bromeliad Queens Tears
Im have some serious buys remorse over the Royal Poinciana. Have you ever seen one!? They get HUGE! Yes , beautiful and HUGE! They put full grow oak trees to shame! What was I thinking!? I wasnt, I dont think!
But today, I did it again. But I was looking just at the pretty pictures (yes Im easily distracted by shiny objects) this time. I came across some beauties!
EXOTIC HAWAIIAN GINGER! Five plants.....
Now I dont think this is the ginger you cook with.....god I hope not! LOL Hopefully they are just pretties.
I also got
PINK Plumeria Seeds (which arent just pink but some are white with pink)
Thai-Malai Plumeria Seeds (they are a hot pink)
Im doing what I did lost year! Last year my whole garden was pretty much blue and green.... this year its leaning towards PINK! AND I DONT EVEN LIKE PINK! LOL
I have found Im a lazy gardener. Stick it in the ground, feed it, water it and cross your fingers!
So, this year should be very interesting....... thanks to ebay.

You are moving to LA. Do you know what size yard you will have to put these seeds and plants? California has several climate zones, but things pretty much grow in all of them with some support, coverings etc. Good luck with your move.
Not LA,CA. We are moving to Lafayette, La.
Yep eBay is great alright. Those gingers sound like they look great. Do you have a link to the eBay listing Denee?
Oh I have seen sooooo much that takes my fancy on that e.bay link!!! Naughty, Naughty..... you really shouldn't have posted it as I'm a dedicated plantaholic!!!!!!! Can feel myself getting drawn back to it now................. LOL
