Went on a Coleus hunt this morning. My first stop was Westbrae Nursery in Berkeley.
Coleus from Westbrae Nursery: Lava Rose, Chocolate Mint, Electric Lime, Florida Sun Jade, Rustic Orange, Kong Mosaic, Redhead & Peter Wonder
I also got an Oxalis vulcanicola ‘Sunset Velvet’ and a cool looking Aloe-like plant, which I kinda think may be a Sansevieria.
Yesterday, I planted a hanging pot with Lysimachia Variegata, Calceolaria calycina and an unknown plant from Mangero Gardens.
Second stop in my Coleus hunt was Berkeley Horticultural Nursery.
Coleus from BHN: Sunset Strip, Coco Loco, Snazzy, Indian Summer, Swallowtail, Molten Lava, Kong Salmon Pink & Pineapple Splash.
I also got a cool Basil Mix six-pack that contains: Sweet Italian, Spicy Bush, Purple, Spicy Thai, Lemon & Lime Basils.
Forgot that I also got Coleus Tiny Toes.
Potted up several Cacti: Rebutia narvaecensis, Rebutia krainziana, Neochilenia jussieui, Opuntia Baby Rita and Sulcl? arcancea.
My Mom and I dismantled a patio table that was just blocking the way. In its place, my Mom moved her Orchids so they can get more light.
I repotted an mystery Orchid into a larger pot, then gave the non-Cymbidium Orchids a good drench with just a touch of Orchid food.
Planted a pot with Persicaria microcephala Red Dragon, Oxalis Charmed Wine, Oxalis Sunset Velvet and some Dwarf Mondo Grass.
Planted a Coleus pot with Peter Wonder, Pineapple Splash and Redhead. Also planted two individual pots: Kong Mosaic and Kong Salmon Pink.
I was able to divide the 6 pack of Basil Mix into 16 separate drinking cup pots.
I’ve been working in the garden for about 7 hours. Got in the house about 9:30pm and saw these stuck to my leg :: j.mp/9aHOXz
