Your garden sounds fabulous, cordelia - hope Yani can get there soon so we can see it! And how come your pots got an invite to the wedding???!!! :D

I think you're right with the climate here, Pam, but I still like the foliage of the broms. The area gets sun for six months of the year, plus reflection off the house. Strangely, cannas didn't like it there at all???

Sorry just read this thread. Thank you for the compliment. I started to read camera manual as Luzy said to take good pictures :oops: :oops: . I'd love to go Cordelia's place. Just extremely busy this weekend. We put pavers down and use it as stepstones. Now we are waiting for the white pebbles delivery to complete the job. Also trying to rescue the lawn as half of them are drying now :cry: :cry:

Once I can manage to escape for few hours, I'll make sure to make trip to Cordelia's place to take pics.
Mouse and Bunny ROCKS!!! :lol: :lol:

Pam, I would have thought heaps. I've had mine for more than two years - one gets a minimum of three hours direct sun, gradually being shaded by the house throughout the day. This time of year, I would think it'd get at least five hours of good light. I love the foliage, and it's getting pups for the first time now.

I have three, maybe four, different types down the side of the house. That area does not get direct sun for six months of the year (when it does get reflected light from a window for a few hours). Now, it's getting what I think is good light for about ummm... (without taking special notice) five-ish hours, with quite a few of them being direct. Of course, now that I've taken out the fuschias, the direct is more.

One of the broms has flowered annually, one of those really thin spikey ones, with spikes that come up and then droop and flower - I'm sure you know the ones...

How about I start a new thread about it: How to make Luzy's bromeliads flower in Melbourne. :lol: :lol:

Oh, and sorry to be hijacking the thread... :oops: :oops:
