This one chose to bloom very differently, noticed its petal r turned inwards.


The colours are so nice and vibrant. Really brightens up the day.

I cut a section off the spring onion plant on Fri, not expecting the remaining bottom to continue growing, yet they did. Amazing to me. Like that, would I hv a continuous supply as long as the bulb is still healthy?

Ytd late afternoon, planted a pot of coriander and a pot of dill.

Hopefully both will germinate.

Jen, the flowers are so beautiful.
My hibiscus flowers have blossomed but they seem to whither quite fast. How many days can your flowers last ?

No days, few hours only.

I catch them every morning :smile: by noon, starts to wither.

I like hibiscus too.

The spring onions will continue growing and the bulb will get smaller and smaller. You will also notice the that spring onions get skinnier and skinnier.

I keep seeing dill. But no idea what to do with dill.

You growing any sweet basil?

I will be trying to grow some thai basil from seed. Basils are the one herb aside from coriander, spring onion and curry leaves that I use pretty frequently.
