Ginger and Cardoons

The ginger has sprouted the beginnings of a leaf stem.
It was planted in February.

The cardoon seeds are ready to travel.  I wonder if this is dangerous.


Is it my imagination or has this greened up slightly?

Compare with:

Amaryllis and Ginger

Here is this year’s amaryllis in full bloom.  The main stem gave six blossoms and the second stem gave four.  I gave them a bit of a shake to dislodge pollen wondering if they will form seed like last year’s did.

This is last year’s amaryllis.  I didn’t know it would come back to life so soon, sending up such magnificent floral stalks.

Here is the start of another experiment–planting a ginger rhizome.  We shall see…

Now just watching for signs of growth.
