Remember the Ixora plants that we replanted as part of community gardening? Well, they have died a slow death! I have never known that the Ixora roots grow so deep and so far to develop new shoots. I just assumed that those smaller saplings grew from wild seeds that we did not intentionally sow! And the roots that we cut for the new plants were not enough to give them the growth the plants needed. A very expensive lesson indeed!
I am sowing seeds as part of the third sowing plan this evening. (I was out of station about the time that I was actually supposed to sow. Better late than never, I’d decided 🙂
