Hi joc...sadly da iris didnt make it..nor did da gladioli... or may b it is till trying to recover from its trip to Zambia!! [Big Grin] ..anyway it has not made any appearance...but da gladioli i know have rotted...coz after a long, long wait i decided to dig 'em up.. n i found remnants of da outer covering only... [tears] But take heart...i do have 3 iris plants growing n 2 gladioli.... from Lorena n Betty Edens of Texas.

Hi dodge... i sure will one day...

Kennyso...they germinate very easily...they'll just grow anywhere they fall on da ground...at least they do this side of da world...but m sure they'd do so just da same out there... just try 'em... if they fail think i can send u more!

Well I know my seeds grow for you, and I spent most of last nite lookin all thru this site, at your LOVELY flowers..........Oh what a glorious sight it must be in your land..........
I know us folks in zone 6 will have to suffer snow soon......

Thanks for sharing your photos all over here. Kept me from watching boring TV last nite.

Hi dodge....

no problem...i'll bear in mind that u want da Butterfly pea seeds...

i found out that passiflora seeds may take 3 months or longer to germinate.... i bought some from Thompson n Morgan ...a different type from mine.... i sowed 'em s soon s i got 'em.... sadly they never germinated!! i was hoping n keeping my fingers crossed... but up to date m giving up on 'em..... just have to b thankful n glad that i have these kinds that da birds sowed for me!!

oh, i'm sure the iris will be okay...even though it got sidetracked to zambia...as long as it's not in a spot where it'll get too soggy.

Please read this ......Here is why I cant get the plants to you! Some one else posted this KRatz.

DOdge
Charlie,

It were plants they confiscated, not seeds?
I know you are forbidden to sent plants (and seeds) with dirt on them to a foreign country!

Passiflora may take a year or longer to germinate. You might be better off with a cutting. My neighbor planted some out in a bed and they didn't start coming up until almost 18 months later! Passiflora requires lots of patience!

dodge,

lol, it's even more exciting than watching paint dry or grass grow!!

I was lucky--my neighbor shared 5 plants with me, but says I'm always welcome to come dig some up! Which is great! I had two plants which I broke the tap root off and they both flowered a few months later.
