Plumeria update~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Fall veggie garden has been solarized,had compost and manure added to it,and is now sitting,basking in the late Florida summer sun.
Resting,until next week,when the seeds I ordered,and plants that are started,can go into the ground.I’m so looking forward to fresh,home-grown salads and vegetables,again.

But in the meantime,a little plumeria update is in order.
The pink and white  pink and yellow has totally stolen my heart…


Can you see why? Great scent,beautiful blooms.What’s not to love?

The white plumeria has put out a seed pod,again,this year.IMG_1492

It did the same thing last year,but I didn’t know how to deal with sprouting the seeds. Meaning,that I totally goofed it up.But after much research,I’m going to try it again this year.
There is a certain way to plant each seed.
and if you screw that up,w-e-l-l you’re totally screwed…..
I,also,found out that each seed can have up to over 54 chromosomes,so you never know what you’re going to get from a sprouted seed.It can take from 10 months to 3 years to get a bloom,so this should be fun….

  1. Yes, I love your pink & yellow plumeria and I can see why you’re in love with it. It’s gorgeous!
    Good luck with those seed pods. Can’t wait to see your results.

  2. I love that pink and yellow, it looks like a sunset in a flower. I think it’s easier to grow plumeria from cuttings, than dealing with the seeds. I don’t even think I’ve seen seed pods on my pink ones. Maybe they’ve been there and I just didn’t notice. 😉 That’s a huge possibility.

    Happy gardening ~ FlowerLady
