Letters from America …

We had an interesting email yesterday from Gary in the USA.

Gary had been born and raised in Wolverhampton and later moved Stateside. Gary’s mother still lives in Wolverhampton.

Some years ago Gary donated a ‘Jade Vine’ Strongylodon macrobotrys  together with an ‘Angel’s Trumpet’ Brugmansia plant.

We spoke to Graham and Theresa – who work in the Conservatory at West Park – and they told us that the plants are still growing, still thriving but still no flowers have appeared on the ‘Jade Vine’  … on a lighter note, the ‘Angel’s Trumpet’ is doing really well!

Graham remembered that Gary also sent us a ‘Orchid Cactus’ ephiphyllum and a ‘Ginger Kahili’ Hedychium gardnerianum and they are both thriving.  Both of these plans flower regularly.  We’ll try to post photographs of these in the future.
