Beauties of your autumn garden
A few months ago we bought a new house. We have a huge garden now, just what I always wanted. The best thing about a new garden is all the stuff that you don't know is there yet. I can't wait until spring to see what else is growing in our garden. Today these beauties suprised me:
I love the first pic - are they a fungus? They look really magical. The berries are beautiful too. I love going out and about in autumn because nature produces such beautiful colours at this time of year.
ooh, how interesting
ooh I have never seen purple berries like that before.. any idea what they are?
No idea, but i'll ask my sister, she probably knows.
It's a Callicarpa bodinieri, most likely the variety "Giraldii" of de "Profusion" my sister says.
hey, in another post there was an idea of maybe setting up a seed swap
id love to trade some nanking cherry seeds for your purple berries.. their beautiful!
heres pics of nanking cherries
in spring the flowers are so pretty and smell nice.. and the cherries are edible.. can even make jam out of them
Swappings seeds sounds like a great idea. Only problem is that many trees and bushes are either inoculated or crossed with other varieties or a combination of both. So planting the seeds doesn't garantee you'll get what you're hoping for. But if you'd like to give it a try, I'd say we should just do it
Ya why not.. Its not gonna hurt anyone by trying and seeds are small so sending them will be super cheap
ill send you a message Marieke
A seed swap is an awesome idea! I've always wanted to grow cherry trees!! ^.^
