Planting Plants

Now that cooler weather has arrived (at least for the weekend), spent some time putting plants in the ground or transplanting them to new locations.

Added two more Pittosporum Creme De Mint (Pittosporum tobira 'Shima') along my backyard path.  Have actually had these since late spring and have been babying them in their pots over the summer - glad to finally get them in the ground (before & after shots).

Transplanted my Red Billbergia (though bought under this name, I'm beginning to think it's actually Cryptbergia 'Red Burst) from where it was getting buried by a nearby Rattlesnake Agave (Manfreda maculosa) to a more prominent location where its bright red coloration will get more noticed.  Also moved several Friendship Plants (Billbergia nutans) from a front bed back here into the tier behind the Red Billbergia.

Moved several Soap Aloes (Aloe maculata) pups into the top tier of my Three Tiers Garden.  Presently have one blooming and at least three others in the process of sending up bloom stalks - which will be their best showing ever.


  1. Looks good.

    I'm not very happy with my shade garden, this year. There will be some 'regardening' done soon.

    Can't wait to see your aloe blooms.

  2. Looks great, the extra couple of Pittosporum really does complete the path way.
