Begonias are native to the moist tropical and subtropical climes of South and Central America, Southeast Asia and Africa. Planted en masse they create a wonderful, long lasting show of colour. The most ideal location for Begonias is dappled shade, although they can tolerate deeper shade but are then less floriferous. #NanamiGardenTips #NanamiFloral

🌺Assorted hibiscus now in stock at @nanami_nursery. Growing hibiscus is an easy way to add a tropical flair to your garden, rewarding you with many years of lovely flowers. Lush, beautiful flowers appear in summer, dying back to be replaced with more of the bountiful blooms the following year. Deadheading, the process of removing fading flowers, can improve the appearance of the plant and prevent reseeding. Although, deadheading hibiscus is not a necessary part of hibiscus flower care and you may be delaying next year’s flowers. These flowers are actually considered to be self-cleaning, dropping off on their own and replaced with new buds. Source: Gardening Know How #NanamiFloral #NanamiGardenTips
Gaillardia, or Blanket Flower, is an easy to grow, short-lived perennial that blooms long enough to blanket your garden. It forms a slowly spreading mound that can reseed and sprawl through the garden. Blanket flowers have a long season of bloom, with repeat flowering from mid-summer through autumn. As are such long bloomers, they work equally well in borders and containers. #NanamiFloral #NanamiGardenTips

🌻Foxglove, now in stock at Nanami Nursery! Foxglove plants grow best in rich, well draining soil. Caring for foxglove plants will include keeping the soil moist. As a biennial or short lived perennial, the gardener can encourage re-growth of foxglove flowers by not allowing the soil to dry out or to get too soggy. If flower heads are not removed, foxglove plants reseed themselves abundantly. Using them as cut flowers can decrease reseeding. If flowers are allowed to drop seeds, thin the seedlings next year to about 18 inches apart, allowing growing foxgloves room to develop. If you want additional foxglove plants next year, leave the last flowers of the season to dry on the stalk and drop seeds for new growth. Source: Gardening Know How #NanamiGardenTips #NanamiFloral

🌺Currently in stock: Celosia flowers, also called woolflowers, have unusual flowers that can bloom up to 10 weeks. These flowers can have red, pink, purple, gold or bicolored blooms. When many celosia flower blooms are next to each other, they collectively resemble fire, which is why the genus name Celosia, meaning burning in Greek, was chosen. The common name of cockscomb comes from the bloom’s resemblance to a rooster’s comb. Each blossom is made up of many tiny flowers, which is why this flower will produce numerous small seeds and keep sprouting in your plant containers with no extra effort on your part. Celosia flowers also look great in vases and bouquets, so you can bring their beauty indoors. #NanamiFloral #NanamiGardenTips
New day gazania. One of our many bright and beautiful new seedlings available in mixed colours this week . A low maintenance South African annual that will brighten up your hard-to-landscape spaces and butterflies will flock to these prolific summer bloomers. Gazania flowers thrive in full sun and the leathery foliage of gazania plants is a clue to the high drought tolerance of this flower. The daisy-like flowers grow in a variety of hot hues on the color wheel, like red, orange, and yellow. Many flowers feature solids and horizontal or vertical variegation on petals, sometimes with splashes of white and bright pink. #NanamiIndigenous #NanamiFloral #NanamiGardenTips

🌺Why the name “Clivia”? History has it that a young horticulturalist, working for Kew Gardens in London, named James Bowie, arrived in the Cape and spent considerable time and effort sending plants back home, to be classified and grown in the glasshouses and gardens of Syon House, the residence of the Duchess of Northumerland. The Botanist Lindley named this plant “ Clivianobilis “ as a compliment to the Duchess of Northumberland, a patron of gardening, of the noble family of ‘Clive’ #NanamiIndigenous #NanamiFloral

🍴🌷You'll find lots of edible flowers at Nanami Nursery, like this scrumptious ruby red dianthus. It is always best to grow your own edible flowers, so you can be sure that they are clean and free from pests or disease. Edible flowers are best picked fresh from the garden the day you want to use them. Growing your own also allows you to experiment and show off to dinner guests both what you have grown and what you’ve created with a colourful and tasty dish. Most dianthus have a pleasant spicy, floral, clove-like taste, especially the more fragrant varieties, and are ideal for decorating or adding to cakes. They'll also make a colourful garnish to soups, salads and the punch bowl. The petals of some will add zest to ice cream, sorbets, salads, fruit salad, dessert sauces, seafood and stir-fries. It is advisable to remove the white heel at the base of the petal as this has a bitter taste. #NanamiFloral #NanamiGardenTips

Polygala myrtifolia from one of our recent landscaping projects. An attractive evergreen shrub that grows up to 2 meters, the September bush is able to adapt to most garden situations. It is fast growing, making it especially useful for new gardens. Polygala myrtifolia in the wild varies in form according to its habitat and distribution. In some areas  it is a tough, loosely branched plant with relatively small, narrow leaves, while in others it is denser with larger, softer leaves. It flowers best in full sun, really dry conditions, poor soil and the least possible care - see natural habitat in photograph 6 above. Good in wild gardens, very dry gardens and exclusion zones. #NanamiGardenTips #NanamiFloral
