I took these photos of a Baobab tree in Botswana in 2004. They grow much larger than this. http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o149/loevenstein/107-0776_IMG.jpg http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o149/loevenstein/107-0777_IMG.jpg Look at that root http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o149/loevenstein/1...

Re: Clivia season

Mikhurram, The Amaryllis worm is very active here during Spring and Summer therefore it means from September through to February. They are very happy to destroy the softer leaf plants like Clivia, Crinum, Agapanthus, Arum Lilies and Hippeastrum. This is another worm we have to be on the lookout for ...

Re: Confused gardener

No need to be confused because we all live and learn from each other. Here is my opinion of fertilizer I use. Any flowering or fruit bearing plant need at least double the amount of K (Potassium) to one part N (Nitrogen) and P (Phosphorus) is not very necessary because the plant's roots should be we...

Re: Clivia season

The Amaryllis worm is the number one destroyer of any plant from the Amaryllidaceae family. They get into the top and bottom skins of the plant and eat very fast towards the crown of the plant. Once they get into the crown the plant had it and you can throw it away. When you see them early you can s...

Re: Haemanthus pubescens

Arif,
As long as the members are enjoying my plants and photos I will keep them coming for you. I will not be offended if anyone tells me that I do not need to post anymore photos.

The Iceberg has come out the water some more already but you will have to wait and see how much is under water still.

Re: Tilandsia

No problem Farooq. I write to everybody as if they are in Pakistan because the forum is called Gardening Pakistan. I just wish I could have seen some of the areas because I cannot get my head around that heat although I always notice how the cricketers perspire when I watch a game from the region. I...

Re: Geissorhiza monanthos

I use the same growing medium for all my bulbs because it is easier to control the watering cycles with the same medium throughout. For bigger pots I add some bark in the mix too because I have to fetch grit in the river about 50kms from my home. I sift the riversand in the river to sort the grit si...

Re: Geissorhiza monanthos

Landscaping with bulbs is not really possible because of all the different growing seasons when bulbs that should be dry will get rain and other way roumd. That is a major reason why my bulbs are in pots and the Clivias and Daylilies in the garden. Some pot are on the ground and the smaller pots are...
