njoynit sent me some brugs this spring...

I have several questions. Duh

Also...I am moving my plants to my daughter's house where I'll be staying for awhile. If I dig these up and move them now, what will happen? Will they be O.K.??? I was gonna dig way out from them and try to keep as much soil with them that I can...so maybe they won't even know they've moved. nutz Reckon that'll work?

If you get plenty of dirt with them they should do fine thumbup I've put mine through hell and they just keep growing. I do remove the lower leaves,but,only so it looks more treelike not bushlike.

I didn't get flowers until it got to be about 4ft tall. Then it exploded...counted 14 blooms the other day thumbup

Didja know they are super easy to grow from cuttings?

G-Mom grinnnn

Should I get cuttings now or wait til after they bloom???

I was thinkin' that maybe I needed to pinch those huge leaves off so flowers would come. You know, like how they pinch the big leaves off pot plants so more of the energy or something goes to the bud part. nutz
Not that I know much about that...I must have read it somewhere. But, it sounds likes a good idea, and I thought maybe that's what I was supposed to be doing.

I pull my lower leaves off cause I grow mine tree like& that just lets the fertilizer work in the tops!You will get flowers when it trunk branches into a "Y" it will then flower on your tips.Don't cut or pinch your tips as thats where the blooms happen at.Sometimes you will get suckers& they can be let alone or you can let them grow.
I got new pictures up in yahoo p

Cindy...when ya move them keep them watered well and mulch them and you can remove the leaves...the leaves will grow back but will be less shock being kinda naked..lol make the hole nice& rich.they like that!

G mom which ones ya got?I'm nosey!

thumbup LOL thumbup

I have 2 yellow Brugs. I also have some daturas. I have a double lavender growing by my pond and I have some "versi-color" datura seeds that I got from a gentleman in England last year. I killed the first 2 "versi-color" that I tried to grow,but I plan on trying them again. I believe the "versicoler" is red and yellow. I also have seeds for the pure white daturas.

I have pure white dauntra wrightii, is not the one that grows big& then dauntra stranonuim.I had a white dauntra with a blueish cast,but my seed didn't do& I didn't have luck with my other dauntras either.
my yellow if it blooms this year will be jamican yellow.I hear sunray has the strongest smell for the yellows.My frosty is on its 2nd flush and its loaded with buds.My seedling is loaded and has one trunk still loaded that will start blooming tonight.dr suess is loaded& charles G has one trunk loaded,the other 5 yet to "Y".Unknown pink has 3 buds.Jean pecaso is sulking.My knightii double white still has something eating its leaves,but its still trunking it on up there!

I'm adding a new brugmansia bed next year.It will have my cannas& EE also A few castor beans for hight....and it will be HUBBY PROOF!It will be raised& will bring back my 100 gallon black pond.Another brug adict up in ontaniro.....has a water lotos blooming in her brug island.I'll be looking for a HUGE flowered water lotus& I'm leaning towards yellow.I'll start it as a place to put leaves from the yard.and rabbit poo& duck poo& great growing plants!

I wonder which is a safer bet????? 2 feet or 3 feet?????
