January is a hard month to find exciting things growing in the northern hemisphere, but I have found six items for this week’s post.
The first three photos.
Firstly, I have been trimming my variegated Tradiscantia which was getting leggy and looking shabby, so I have take lots of cuttings which I hope to grow into new plants.
Next photo is this lovely scented white Jasmine. A couple of weeks ago I showed it budding up and now the flowers are opening and it is giving off a delicate scent.
The third photo is of more cuttings which are beginning to grown roots. Here we have a jar with an African Violet leaf and an Echeveria leaf.
Next are small green shoots on two of the hydrangea cuttings that I took last autumn. I’ve had to bring them inside as they were getting too damp in the cold frame and were showing signs of mould.
The second photo is of the red Kalanchoe which is just coming into bud. Also known as flaming Katy, Christmas kalanchoe, florist kalanchoe and Madagascar widow’s-thrill. A tropical succulent, they are a perennial flowering plant from the Crassulaceae family.
Last photo goes to the Bluebells in the back garden which are starting to push through. It will be a while yet before they flower.
