My African Large Leaf Jade just put into its new pot... It looks like it's uncomfortable - but it's 2010, give it time.

Egyptian Sage: This plant can be a bit of a pest, but I've potted mine up and it smells lovely. Today I repotted it and gave it a trim.

This is a Jatropha - a plant originally from India where they grow them like Wheat and use them like a bio-fuel. The black seeds that grow off them are highly poisonous (and I watch out for them to collect them to plant again) and they use them to fuel the cars in India - or so I've read.

Zanzibar Aloe Vera - prickly as hell, but one of my favourite plants to use around the garden... as it's hardy and easy to care for.

I don't know what this one is called, but it's very cute and has been growing so well since I bought it at the Rochedale Fruit Market. So, I thought to take a cutting and plant it in another pot... see how it goes... see if it'll grow. If so, I'll do it again.

I have a new little plant in my garden, but I don't know the name of it.   This is a first for me - but when I bought it, there was no name tag. The lady at the check-out said it was 'a pretty plant' and that's all the clues I got.

It took me a while to get it sitting straight and flat on the pavers - and on its little feet I had bought - but it's turned out really great!

6th, July 2016: I bought a Ficus. This is related to the Strangler Fig and should never be planted in the ground. So, these plants are more suitable in large pots and shaped into topiary. I bought this one to use as a privacy shrub on my side fence.

Thirsty palm... see how the leaves have curled on this palm? It means it's conserving its water and energy on a hot day; and it badly needs a water.
