Mine could have come from there. I've also bought from them - great for bulbs. Sounds like you live in the right place. Check out Yamina Rare plants (not sure if they still sell to the public)

Oh, they do indeed! They're just up the road too. A VERY dangerous place to go, unless you're married to Bill Gates or something.

Yep :) This time of year is a very exciting time for me, as I get to think about what to order of my three favourite things - bulbs, roses, and fruit trees.

Tree dahlia flowering. Does anyone else have these ? First time its flowered , was given a cutting a few years back , the plant has grown out at an angle so the whole thing is now about 3 meters tall but shooting out horizontally with the flowers facing the lawn - i had to lie underneath to get the photo :-D .Others i have seen in our area are like this too so im wondering if they ever grow more upright.

Lovely angelcake (and reassuring to see other 'wild and woolies')
Your 'wildflowers' are a couple of weeks ahead of mine but (didn't get pruned) roses are out.

Thanks Sue :-D , i really like the rampant abundance of plants/flowers. Love to see some photos of your roses , i have a few here but the subtropic humidity does them in a bit.

I had an interesting talk with a 55yo x-kiwi guy this morning. He & his 54yo girlfriend have just rented & moved into the granny flat on my horse property. They told me they were keen gardeners. I have 1.5ac of house yard filled with gardens & the granny flat is called Garden Cottage which gives you an idea of it's surrounds.

I was in the cabin vegie garden part showing him what was ready to harvest & he pointed to a mature triple curl parsley plant growing quite large in the corner of one bed & asked me if that was a broccoli!! I was speechless! :huh?

Then he pointed to the very large spotted gum trees growing all around in the paddocks which are messily shedding their bark this year & asked me why anyone would plant such trees! It was as much as I could do to not laugh loud & hard at the thought of broccoli parsley & the idea that he thought someone actually went around planting gum trees in the bush! :rooll
