Nothing at all, it is midwinter.

I am waiting for my phormiums and sikkimenses and heliconia rostrata
to sprout.

I am waiting for four month for my trhitrinax campestris to sprout.

I am waiting for spring so I can put my Yucca rostrata and Yucca
thompsoniana in the ground wich are in the cold greenhouse next to
trachycarpus plants / sabal minors plants / olive / passiflora.

I am waiting for spring to bring my three ensetes ventricosum outside.

I am waiting for spring to bring my potted cannas outside.

I am waiting for spring to bring my sprouted brahea armatas super silver
in the greenhouse.


One must be mad to grow tropical species in zone 8.

Tammy,

I trade cuttings with other fig nuts, people on the Fig Forum at Garden Web, people from www.seedsavers.org, etc. Plus varieties from USDA/UC Davis. I have about 140 varieties in ground, 70+ yet to plant and cuttings from close to another 100 varieties. I also have available cuttings listed in the seedsavers yearbook.

This weekend I planted a Pygmy date palm, 2 firecracker plants, about 10 bromeliads, some Huecheras (gonna try them for the first time). I am going out now to plant 2 pindo palms, a Canary Island date palm, 2 phoenix sylvestrys palms, and whatever else I decide to pull out of the greenhouse and stick in the ground. Its 75 right now, we are supposed to see highs around 83 or so this week, so I think its time. Ave frost free is about March 10th here

Lilith - love your stream in your greenhouse. What did I plant today? 12 pink grapefruit seedlings! It looks as if the balsa tree across the road from me will start releasing seed shortly - would anybody like some? Wonderful leaves and big white flowers - don't know the regulations for this kind of stuff though, so if it is forbidden please tell me.

Thanks, Cassie!
You are in Hawaii, right? The Agricultural Laws dealing with plant import and export in HI are convoluted at best. It used to be that only certain things could not be sent TO Hawaii, including orchids, bananas, bromelaids,coffee plants, and some other stuff, without a specific import permit.

This permit had to be obtained by the receiver in HI, not by the sender. And, everything sent OUT of HI to the Mainland had to be "certified" for export on the HI end as well.

But along about 2005 all of the states rewrote their Ag laws and now its harder to send anything into or out of HI. I would advise you to check with you local office there before you send plants out or accept trades, just to save yourself some potential problems.

No Lilith - in the Dominican Republic, which is why I can't obtain pups from the USA. Apart from the fact that the postal system is non-existant! lol

For most countries you can send plant seeds, because most of the time they are worried about living plants or plants in soils that harbor pests and disease. But I would contact USDA and Arg. dept. for The Dominican Republic

It has been 86 degrees fahrenheit(30 celsius) overhere in holland the last 2 days. A new april record after all the warmth records we had last year.
All my bananas are moved from the greenhouse to outside and they grow
fantastic.
Now I am waiting for my licuala grandis wich I have ordered and some gingers.
Have also planted one Fuchsia, one clematis and one passiflora.
