Mother and Daughter Hawthorn

This is my largest Hawthorn, really starting to take shape. It’s been a long road but I’m starting to be a little happier with it these days. This year saw it’s best flowering to date. Plans afoot for a new pot for next year. I think it’s the most protective mother ever 🙂

Hawthorn

This one was repotted to do another root adjustment, it’s taking it a while to remove problem surface roots to allow it to fit in a final pot. This one’s temporary, one pot to go 🙂

Satsuki Flower Removal

The best was past for my Satsuki Azalea and it was time to remove the flowers to help conserve a little strength. It took a while but I got the all, just always make sure you get the seed pod too. These are the four flower types on this tree.

The Two Sisyrinchium I missed!

I posted the flower shots from the Sisyrinchium varieties I have a few days ago. I missed out the yellow one and I have since found that I have a light blue one as well! No idea where I got it from, I thought it was a ‘Californicum’  up until the flower opened! I have swapped that many plants this last year I have lost track lol.

Common Spotted Orchid – Dactylorhiza fuchsii

I have a few of these that had self seeded into pots. I wasn’t sure what variety of orchid they were until they flowered. Not thanks to the power of social media I have them identified as Common Spotted Orchid – Dactylorhiza fuchsii. My next challenge is to get them into a kusamono planting next year.
