    Mabuhay!

    I still love Scotland. I'm gonna be there someday. Anyway, with that kind of weather, i guess, i can grow a lot of cymbidiums every color and every freaking ice cold loving plants that i can't grow here in the tropics. Anyway, i love Phils and Scotland. hehehehhe

I have to admit that I added four 80ltr bags of compost into the ground five years ago and that made the ground even better than it already was - I have sandy/silty loam soil. I think the New Zealand daisies are my faves tho'.
    You should get some Kowhai trees for your yard, you can grow them in tubs and bring into the garage etc for winter. The chilean rhubarb is NZ no.3 pest, highly illegal here.....heck, soon i wont be able to grow anything! the rhubarb is horrible though...unless of course it is normal rhubarb! YUM! The poppy trick only works on the Himalaya blues though.

    Thank you people! I didn't realise that gunnera was a problem in NZ! Why is it so bad there? Does it seed - I suppose it does, duh! lol A kowhai tree, eh? Just looked it up but can't find out how hardy/tender it is. Now I'll have to have one LOL.
