Plant Swap- Ricinus Communis- Caster Oil Plant for a Hedychium Ginger
Hi Anyone in thelYork area who would like to plant swap a Caster Oil Plant/ Ricinus Communis with a Hedychium Ginger- orange colour- or a Canna Lily.?
I have some extras which I grew from seed after seeing it on Gardeners World with Carol Klein and Monty Don and in her book Life in a County Cottage.
So have created a hot border and "hot trough" so want to compelte the look.
A good tip if you can't find it at the GC or on line or is too expensive- I usually buy the hard to come by or unusual species on e-bay e.g. had some great ornamental grasses- were plugs now full-size for a few pound, eryngium Jos Eikling and Sambuca Black Lace but haven't found a orange hedychium as yet-
Have now put my extras Caster Oil Plants on e-bay and will be watching for a hedychium. Will let you know how I get on.
Anyone else tried selling their extra cuttings, divisioss or too many young plants on E-Bay?
It is a good way of selling yours to buy someone else extras............
