Thorns in my garden

Post by Muhammad Arif Khan » November 24th, 2014, 10:21 am

Except for the spring the roses are a pain full thorn in my garden, through out the year they look sick and depressing and yet I have no heart to pull them Out and they wont oblige me by death.
Not a cheerful sight

Another thorny delight, all it wants is FULL SUN, no sun no flowers.

The Budha tree also has spines but mostly on the trunk, in bloom it is breath taking.

I was at Pattoki a couple of years ago and rooted cuttings of several different colors of Bougainvillea were available in small pots for a mere 20 rupees.

cut branches which are pencil thick, six inches size, poke them in plain bhall, keep well watered, within 15 days it will inshaAllah root... best in March or during monsoon... very easy plant in Karachi..
