Baskets, baskets

Posted on

I am not very happy with the baskets I’ve put up so far, probably because I am impatient and couldn’t wait for the plants to actually develop from seed; which some of them admittedly are doing pretty well so far, and as I was on a quick business trip this morning to Saudi, I thought I would pass by the Sultan Centre on the way back.

I did.

I came back with two new big wire baskets, felt inserts, 20 pansies and 10 dianthus as well as a beautiful huge indoor plant that the guy unfortunately mislabelled. I shall have to post its picture soon and elicit your help in identifying it.

I asked my gardener to deal with them this afternoon with strict instructions on what to do, as I had to come back to the office. They should look pretty nice I think. I’ll post a picture when I get a chance.

    Looks suspiciously like a plant my grandmother used to call “tobacco”. It wasn’t actually tobacco, but it was called that. I don’t know what the proper name is. Will do some looking around this week. I know I’ve seen a plant like that somewhere, though.
