Hello all I am a green horn to this wonderful site after spending several hours of spare time reading through the forums I couldnt help but sign my life away and become a member. the helpful feedback and friendly replys to matters people post is amazing. So I wish to share my idea and thoughts on what I wish to change with my garden.this past week I have invested many hours turning over and transplanting my lily gardens to bring them back to a sense of order but as they only flower once a year my gardens now resemble scorched earth with wilting lilly stalks. I had tussocs in as space fillers but they seemed to me a depressing sight so I removed them and have a massive amount of space to play with I recently had a great idea and wish to bring it to reality. I want to create a dreamy psychedelic garden for all to enjoy and admire in my area I would like to plant in a mixture of coleus blumei around the circumfrance of the garden to provide the magical kaleidoscopic colorful view. in the center row of lillys I would like to have lionstale growing at even intervills between the stalks. And then a must have is some lovely sally d at strategic areas for personal (cough) reasons. the species of plant I have mentioned are rather hard for me to find in my part of the country so any help in acquiring them would be accepted with great gratitude and would be a basis for me to help others wishing to obtain and grow such plants in my area. of course this will be a work in progress taking a season or more of nurturing and growing of seeds/ clones etc but the end result will be well worth the wait and effort involved the end result come February 2015/2016 will be a colourfull trippy looking delight of 50cm to 5-6 foot tall paradise and what better way to marvel at such a view of work with enjoying in the delights of the psychotropic offerings these plants can give Thank you.
Marcel posted a topic in EthnobotanyMy Leonitis leonurus are flowering and looking pretty awesome at the moment. Any have any tips on how to best harvest and prepare the blooms and leaves? Cut a whole stem and hang to dry, or pluck leaves and petals separately? Also, while we're at it, what are people's thoughts on this particular plant?
