Hi Dichondra,
My emails to you keep bouncing back, so I thought I'd post the info here...
So nice of you to say hello! Don't you just love the
Master Gardener program :) I'm still offcially in
training, but will receive my certification in
January. The volunteer hours really do add up quickly
because there are so many enjoyable things to do.
Good luck with your program there!
Regarding the Rainbow has been
spoken for, however, there is a seed source. I
ordered the seeds from Tradewinds (link below). The
seeds are small and germination has a very low
percentage. I did start E. citriodora (ahhhh, lemon
scented) and some blue gums, too, and they had better
germination. Years ago I had some E. citriodoras in
large containers and I gave them away, due to lack of
space. I actually missed brushing up against their
lemony leaves so much that I went on the hunt for the
seeds again. They were a bit hard to find, and I
eventually got them from England. I have 3 of those
now and I love them everyday that I see them.
It's funny in that I find myself drawn to tropicals
moreso than I want to be...LOL. I have to lug in too
much into a tiny laundry room every year. This year I
also have some white/orange throat mandevilla,
gardenia, and oleander to make room for...uggg!
Well, take care and enjoy your Master Gardener
program. Fall is here, and so comes other gardening
issues and commitments. Good luck with your
Eucalyptus seeds if you order them. If I can help you
in any way, just drop me an email.
In garden spirit,
Trish :)
