Summer 2018

Post by Izhar » April 14th, 2018, 2:36 pm

There has been a lot of seed sowing in early March... however, sudden rise of temperature has caused havoc on the spring annuals and roses.. seedlings however grew very fast... here is a pic of seed sowing earlier, now they have been transplanted last week... will share their progress too:

Yes sir, mogra is known as "Grand Duke of Tuscany" in English... it has bigger flowers which are like miniature roses, fragrance is much intense... however, blooming power is lower than motia...

Then, shouldn't it be closer in resemblance & may be even fragrance to Gardenia. It isn't as common, I suppose- is it ?
