The plant has grown tremendously. Starting from a single very small (10 cm) branch it has already become a nice little bush. Seems it likes my gardening. I will dry some leaves, spray them with water, roll the wet leaves and let them ferment (wrapped in cling film) for 24 hours at room temperature.
One thing makes me a little bit nervous: This year someone (brats) climbed in many gardens in our community and stole lots of hydrangea shoots. They simply chopped the branches and ruined this years blossoms, many gardeners weep hot tears (not me, they did'tn find my plants behind the walls) and there was a big uproar. Police warned not to smoke the dried shoot because of its content of cyanide?! If there will be no further posts I did'nt survive the infusion trial. As for the brats: no casualties known so long.
For brats maybe more interesting - quick garden stroll:
|My strawberries - very sweet!|
|My white currants|
|to keep away strangers: my blackberries (still blossoming) near the Kiwi|
