Success with the Sequoiadendron Giganteum !

Everything is easy. When you have learned the "how to process". I have been blessed with an increased feeling of satisfaction when it comes to my gardening hobby. For some months I have had problem with getting seedlings from the Sequoiadendron Giganteum to survive. But I think I might have succeeded now. Apparently these rather, to my mind, sensitive plants need a lot of moisture to thrive. Basically that is one of the major changes I have done. I have simply showered them with a mist of water twice/three times per day ( when I have had the chance). Look at the beauties.

The Sequoiadendron Giganteum is a tree that might be able to age beyond centuries and even milleniums. Imagine that little me have been part of the initiation process, of what I hope to be a long lived tree.

My oh my...

 In Japan there is a tradition by some bonsaigrowers. To make a bonsai whenever you have a child or grandchild. I like this tradition. The seeds of the above Sequoiadendron Giganteum were sowed when my friends Karl and Linda had a child. A beautiful thought and tradition by the Japanese people. In honour of their first child the small sequoia with lots of needles goes by the name of " Tilde".

Au revoir for this time !

7 Pot/ 7 Pod

7 pod ( Capsicum Chinense) flower in April. Stockholm Sweden.

7 Pot plant.

I have been a bit preoccupied with worldly matters. And as such have not got a chance to update the homepage. I have one plant that has not been affected by the aphid attacks. It is the 7 pot/7 pod. Right now it is in full bloom for me. I expect fruit in 1-2 months on it. I realized there are some benefits with having saved plants from last year. You certainly dont need to promote the growth stage. As such one can take it easy with the Nitrogene supporting. Basically you need to promote the fruiting stage.
