Nursery stock

Postby Pam » Sat Nov 17, 2007 6:26 pm

My mother was practically given a few nursery stock plants including a couple of 15year-old bougainvilleas - she sent me this pic of one she'd potted up, simply to skite. :roll: Nice plant, got plenty of potential, methinks. :wink:

Very nice Pam. A little judicious clipping of the shoots 'breaking out', let the lower branches grow out sideways a bit more, and she has a good looking tree there.

Pardon my ignorance Pam but is it a bouganvillia? :oops: I've never seen one with light leaves like that.

It's absolutely gorgeous, and especially like the pot - it really sets off the colour of the foliage. Your mum has the touch!!!!

Finally got a pic showing its size, with a shovel for comparison.

My Mum got this and various other 15+ year-old plants for only $5 each! :shock: :D
