Bits and Pieces Garden

I have bought so many new hippies from GE that this garden is about to become our bulb garden.

I look forward to seeing it next year when it's full of flowering hippies, abwal.

What is the orange flowering plant in the right-hand front of the picture?

TheE, I hadn't forgotten your request - the first flower on ours opened this morning, but it is (I think) too high up to get a pic. Will see how I go.

Pam, crucifix orchid.
The Estate, probably the one you patiently await. My sister calls it the coconut one because of its perfume. It is probably mainly orange. I had a nasty fungus in my frangis last year and they did not flower well. Wouldn't like to pass any on until I'm sure I have knocked the fungus completely.

To the left is the common white with yellow centre, behind it is the evergreen white with shiny leaves, to the right is the yellow, in the foreground (out of picture) is the red-black.

The larger tree in full leaf is a cherry guava (beaut jelly).

Soon as I'm sure they are clean I'll get some pieces together for you, but it is a difficult fungus to eradicate - I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Stops flowering and makes the branches all lumpy and ugly. I think I have succeeded this time.

Sounds charming! Will know now, though to keep an eye out for lumpy, ugly branches, and to avoid them like the plague. I initially thought you just meant rust or similar, abwal. Clearly not?!

Pam, No much worse than rust. I have added a photo to my site.

Just checked it out abwal - not nice at all. May I ask, did that develop in places where you had pruned the trees, or just randomly?

And I am guessing that you'd trim all that off and then treat with a fungicide?

Pam, The pruning is from removal of damaged stem. I did not want to cut too much at a time. As you will know, frangipani bleed badly when cut and it is supposedly possible for them to bleed to death. It arrived from nowhere in healthy shoots. I keep saturating it with fungicide - did so all winter when it was leafless. Fingers crossed.
