Today is the day, the time has come..had to cut my Angels Trumpet..it breaks my heart.. wish I had a bigger house and grow inside. This is the third year now growing them in #Newfoundland and was told from the Greenhouses in ontario would never grow here, because its tropical..Guess I proved them all wrong, and it’s been cold in the greenhouse at nite. Back in May when they were put outside they got hit by frost and came back no problem..
But now giving them all away.. it was a slice #angelstrumpet#brugmansia
Having experience some cold and having its leaves fallen off, we moved the Brugsmansia (better known as Angels Trumpet), indoors after a prodigious blooming period this Summer in the South Garden. The flowers of this unidentifiable cultivar starts off yellow, and gradually turns a melon-orange over a few days. However the major asset of this ‘tree’ like shrub is its incredible fragrance which perfumes the air. Still waiting on IG’s scratch & sniff feature. Notice the flower bud behind it getting ready to inflate. This plant is already beginning the cycle of leafing out after being brought indoors about 10 days ago. With a little Tiger Bloom added to its weekly watering it should produce flowers throughout the winter months.
"Nature is impersonal, awe-inspiring, elegant, eternal. It's geometrically perfect. It's tiny and gigantic. You can travel far to be in a beautiful natural setting, or you can observe it in your backyard--or, in my case, in the trees lining New York City sidewalks, or in the clouds above skyscrapers."
