What are your plans for this year?
    #2478274 - 03/27/04 04:47 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

It's that time of year again, and I just started digging up dirt, getting rid of roots etc.. Finally nice enough out to start that kind of work.


My current plans:

Lightpost/rock garden:
-Hawiian Baby Woodrose near the lamp post so it can climb it
-Not sure, but I want to plant something around it to cover the dirt (tried Alyssum last year with no luck. might try it again)

Front Stoop:
-Old rose plant that I hope is still alive
-Perhaps morning glory so it could climb the brick wall

Backyard:
-Datura Metel (BEAUTIFUL plant, can't wait to see it in person)
-Datura Var. Gore Island
-Perhaps Sceltium (want to do that indoors as well)
-Wild dagga
-Heimia

Indoors:
-Sceltium
-Pervuvian Torch


I also plan on planting a yopo seed or two as well. Doubt they'll last long, but it will be interesting to see.

This is my first "real" year, since last year was more of a practice run. I'll take pics if I can as well. (hopefully they'll be something to take pics of!)

I just ordered most of the seeds I need to finish my nightshade collection.  Apart from that I've planted loads of african ethnos and I'm getting ready to germinate a bunch of cact  inndoors.

Found out how to get compost for 10 quid a ton. It gets bigger every year. :laugh:

Lots of fruits and vegetables along with a few herbs. A few ethnos, plus giving ornamental poppies a try. Hopefully this will be a good season

I plan on going with seeds. I could change my mind.

I've also thought about trying to start a "humming bird garden". Saw some seeds at a store advertised to attract hummingbirds, and a feeder as well. There are a couple in my area, although they're a bit rare. Anyone happen to know the chances of attracting them? I don't want to spend $20 for nothing.

We have a kiwi plant Shriek, growing outside in England, and it flowers every year. Last year we even got (small) fruit! Be careful if it gets big though, ours started attacking a birch tree and nearly pulled off a branch! It likes to grab things...

This year I'm growing peyote (x 125), pedros (x 100), sceletium (x 5), salvia (x 15, and one more every week or two!), coffee (x 2), monkshood (x 10), hopefully a few nightshades, and delosperma cooperi (100 planted, x 20 so far...). I intend to grow LOTS of this and A/B extract the whole lot, to find out just what % of what alkaloids it contains. Lots of places say it contains DMT, nowhere says how much, so I hope to be able to provide some figures...
All growing from seed, except Sally. It's the most rewarding way I find.
(also I have a few more peyotes and pedros from before)

Good luck with monkshood. It is painful to grow from seed.

Yeah, I know... I've done it before, but after I planted them out most got killed by that climbing weed that looks like morning glory. Hopefully I (and the plants!) will have better luck this time...

I'm afraid I have no idea how it got there, it was here before we moved in. I would start it indoors though if I were you, so you can keep an eye on it until it's big enough to look after itself.
Winters get quite cold here, probably down to about -5*C? I'm not sure really. Cold enough for some good snow.
