Village Fete goodies
The one thing I was hoping was that there would be a plant stall again. Last year, I rashly purchased a Streptocarpus. Now, I am not known for my green fingers where house plants are concerned, as the only things I have managed to grow and not kill are Aloe Vera plants and Spider plants. However, the Streptocarpus 'Myfanwy' which I bought then, not only survived the winter and my rather haphazard care, it is flowering profusely.
I think they are gorgeous! Having done a bit of internet searching (Dibleys nursery here seems to be the one to look at), I am feeling confident about having a go at propagating, as they seem to propagate easily from leaf cuttings. I have a feeling that this may be the start of yet another collection!
