I am off to India for at least a month, and have started my preparations to make it easier for my wife and daughter to care for my garden while I am away.
Firstly, I handed over all my cuttings (lantana, fig, hydrangea, gardenia, coleus, yesterday, today and tomorrow and many others) to my friend Utiyama, who has promised to look after them.
Secondly I moved all plants in planters to the balcony so that they can be watered at one shot from within the house.

The instructions also included what spaces to water, remove weeds, add fertilizer and cut off dried flowers or leaves. I’m hoping at least 50% of the instructions will be properly implemented 🙂
Here are some flowers in bloom:
Morning glory –1
Balsam with a couple of visitors
Aster with unwelcome visitor!
Bonsai update and morning glories along fence
Time to pack up! Until the next post, happy gardening!
