A gift from dear friend: Buddleia Davidii

My good blogger friend gave me her extra buddleia davidii or butterfly bush plant when i visited her in July. I have tried to grow this plant from seeds so many times but so far none of the seeds germinate. Thanks a million Kak A for your gift.  It had bloom and produce pink flower. It is said to be fragrant but i never detect its fragrances even when my nose is only mere centimetre from it! My aim now is to get black knight variety

black berbera : the sweetest fig

Of all the varieties of fig that i grow which is already fruiting Black Berbera is the tastiest and the sweetest. This is also the most expensive variety that i bought followed by black madeira.Both are from Portugal. This is the main crop, unfortunately since the plant is small it only bear 2 fruits.
