Saying Goodbye to My Babies

Last October I promised Maureen Martin that I would  propagate some plants from my garden in aid of cancer research.  Maureen and Keith propagate plants  from their garden all year around and sell them twice a  year in Lane Cove.  I have attended a couple of their sales and always found plants to bring home.

The next sale is in April but I already have a number of plants ready to go.  My place is tiny so I sent Maureen an SOS and this morning she and Keith came over and took them off my hands so that I can continue to strike more cuttings.

Into her car went:  eight fig trees, three roses, two curry leaf trees, an Arabian jasmine and a gardenia; all propagated from my garden plants.  Goodbye babies, see you in April!
