firstly my lipstick plant has seeded! I heard that they could be propagated by cuttings and have started some off quite successfully, and then noticed these long dangling strips where the flowers had died off. Well now I noticed they had opened up - I am probably going to have hundreds of tiny lipsticks plants growing up around the hanging basket now.
Maybe this will be the year that I grow and harvest gemsquash. Now I am beginning to wonder - is gemsquash really that wonderful? or is it just that we hanker for a taste of our youth?
