Hi Hazel,

The Vietnamese do great things with Bougainvillae and other plants in what I call “potscaping”,
similar to bonsai. There are quite a few photos here, if you are interested:
Potscaping Vietnam - a set on Flickr

Unfortunately there are not a lot of English speakers in Vietnam and those who are, work in
tourism, hotels etc., not as gardeners. Therefore I have seen the results of their art, but
could not ask how they do it.

I have real problems with my Bougainvillae, mostly stemming from the fact, that I have to
keep it inside from October through March and even in April I have to take it inside every
time frost threatens. By the time it is well under way with recovery, it is almost fall again


When I trim it back this coming autumn I will try to root a few of the cuttings, so I have
something to experiment with. Maybe I can keep it small enough to grow it indoors
permanently.

Best,
Olaf

Yep --- Fuyu 'simmons. One of the best ways to kill the GERD. For gout -- cherries. Forget the meds.

BTW Snookie --- if you ever get tired of mayoring for Lizard creek you can find a great job in your regular line of work ---monkey taming right here in St Lucie county, FL. Check it out.
