I have bulbs for Elephant Ears, I don't know if they will grow if I plant them this late.

I have Zinnias, Forget-Me-Nots, Nasturtiums, and Snapdragons in big pots. Also some plant I can't remember the name of, but the flowers are white and trumpet shaped and last only one day. They look like the kind of flowers Gerogia O'Keefe use to paint.

Muzza--

I thought it was winter now where you live!! Are your winters mild? How can you be planting?

What is a loquat? I know what a kumquat is. Are they similar?

Aunty... we have some varieties of Cabbage and Cauliflower and lettuce which we plant in the winter and they mature late winter/early spring. Loquat is about the size of a plum, yellow, has a very big stone in it for the size of the fruit and has one of those flavours you either like or don't like. Flesh is white and soft.

And I forgot Hydrangea on my list.

And the temp outside at 3.00pm today was 42f.

Hi Muzza;

Thanks for the information.

My hydrangea has been a pet project of mine. It started out as a gift plant from one of my sons for Mother's Day May 2004, and I was determined to keep it alive. I went online and got in touch with a lady who gave me lots of advice, and lo and behold! it is going to bloom now for the second year. It bloomed pink last year; it was blue when I got it. I can't remember what makes the difference. I think it has something to do with the Ph of the soil.

Yeah, Auntie, you're right about the ph. I *think* it's acidic (like limestone) to make it more blue and alkaline to make it more pink. If I'm not mistaken, it's something similar to that with Colorado Blue Spruces, too. I know pines need acidic soil but I think I remember hearing it made the Blue Spruces more blue.
