My Lemony Nemesia


My Lemony Nemesia

At the nursery the nemesia was a nightmare! Rotting off in the plugs or wilting, disappearing when planted so I was worried as I hadn't tried before. They have been extremely rewarding. Keeping on the dry side is the trick I think, plant with other dry tolerant plants for best partnering.

Thanks! My nemesia has rewarded me with these big clouds of bloom for three months! I think next year there might be many added. What a little doer!

Thank you. I'm addicted to them. I really did not expect the performance I received. I'm not especially fond of the scent, but I can take it to have these colorful clouds around the garden.

Good. :-) I had no idea they would be so long lasting and huge! Only trouble I've ever seen with them is being kept too wet. Good luck!

Lovely flowers. I had a go once at growing some and they are a bit hit and miss.

Thank you! :-) They did seem about half and half in the nursery as little ones. I really think the early stages can be high maintenance, feeding them but never over-watering. Once they are established, they are much easier to trust.
