Summer 2014

Post by Mustansir Billah » July 22nd, 2014, 11:27 pm

This summer I have grown only few annuals from seeds and got some perennials from nursery. This is Alhamdullilah most successful summer of past 3 years(Since i have started gardening). May Allah bless all the forum members who have helped me so much. I do gardening in containers so, I would call this summer as contained summer... :D

JazakAllah to all respected members for such appreciation and remarks. Farooq sb. and Hamad sb. you are right it is Rondeletia. The nursery men also had pink and red. Is it a close relative of Pentas?
