    Hi again jade62. I’m pretty sure the plant was a purple verbena like this: http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/2186/purple-spreader-garden-verbena.php

    I didn’t end up getting you any cuttings because the soil was very poor and weedy and it never grew back to its best.

    I originally bought the small pot for $3 at Big W. I’m sure it’s very readily available though – you should be able to pick it up at Bunnings, nurseries etc.

    Yep we are in for another but of hot weather.

    The last few afternoons we have been sitting outside in long pants and sleeves and even coming inside because its too cold to sit out side, joking about it being the middle of summer and it being like winter…..I’m sure in the next few days we wont be going outside because its too hot…..what ever happened to summer just being hot?

    yeah, its been bizare, Ive been running around in jeans and jumpers the last few days, ive even had to pop an extra blanket back on the bed.

    but ive managed to get some seeds germinated in this weather, now I’ll have to concentrate on keeping them alive

    I’m cold too! I actually like hot weather, even though the garden doesn’t.

    mummyjas – glad to hear there’s hope that DD9 might eventually have a normal diet! Enjoy your Diggers membership – I had one for a few years and bought some good stuff there.

    You can have some of ours. :tup: everything in my garden is dead and baked thanks to this heat and nextdoor cutting down all of their trees which shaded it.

    well didnt I speck to soon 😆 we went from 43 degrees to a week of cold rains.

    I guess you could say that today was hot enough to cook an egg

    and it still wont let me load photos :tanty:

    hopefully this works

    My rhubarb plant is going great guns in growth but is not turning red. Smaller plant (first year planted) is going red. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Good job mummyjas.. I managed to save all my seedlings also. I am very pleased too 🙂

    The plant is a red type because a small section at the base is red and it was bought as a red one. The stems are thickening nicely but they just have a pale blush of colour stronger at the base. Maybe I’m just being impatient!

    Ive didnt lose anything either, I had curtains over everything, except the seedlings out the front, they just got a drink a couple of extra times a day, were out of direct sun and the northerly that roars through my backyard.

    Tomorrow more beds to make and those seedlings to plant, someone tell my why I buy seedlings when it is much more satisfying starting plants from seed 😀
