The Galtonias are Here


The Galtonias are here - so I am off to add them to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - just a little bit late.

I love my Galtonias, and they are so easy to grow. Hopefully I will have seeds available this year for anyone in Australia who would like some (as long as you know I can send seeds to you from Victoria).

Late Note: Since a few people obviously haven't met these before, I went outside and measured them. The tallest is 1.25 metres high. These are the giants of the snowdrop world. They are growing in full sun in my Kitchen Garden.

Those are beautiful! Right now, I wish I could visit the warm weather (I know it's actually too hot) there.

What a beautiful plant and so strangely exotic looking (to me at least). I'm not sure I've ever seen anything quite like it. Pretty!

Oh I do like those Galtonias. I tried to grow some from seed but failed I think it was too wet and cold that summer. I like the way they contrast with the purple stake
