Who could resist such a bargain.....it's a beauty. Well done Sandra :-)

I would buy two of them at that price. Looks so healthy.

That is a wonderful price for such a healthy plant. Look at all those shiny leaves and lovely white flowers.
Lucky you :-)

Thank you,G,mage,Val,Klahanie and Chris,It pays to be eagled eyed doesn't it? Lol. There were actually two on the sale table,but the other wasn't as good...and actually girls,I got it for free,as I had a credit receipt from a gifted gardening token I was given at Christmas :o) I still have some left to spend another time ...I only went for a bag of Ericaceous compost,but their prices have shot up this year,so we called in at a smaller one on the way home,and got the same size,for £2 cheaper.Jammy,or what? .my lucky day..:o)

I love this vine! It's very widely grown here outside along cyclone fences or trellises. The fragrance of the flowers are so sweet and awesome!

Lovely plant at a bargain price Bloomer, clever you to spot it there, the perfume is lovely isn't it, the waxy flowers are so pretty. :o)

Thank you Delonix..It would be lovely to be able to grow this outside here..you are very lucky..

Thanks Neellan..I'm glad I spotted it..The perfume is gorgeous,especially when I get up in the morning,and the door has been closed overnight..x

Yes, we're lucky here in San Diego...we can pretty much grow any tropical vine outside in the ground.

I have several Stephanotis floribunda photos growing outside with its large seed pods.

That's lovely Sandra it looks so healthy I'm guessing you will be calling into the smaller nursery more often in the future ...

12 Mar, 2015

 

Thanks Amy..I am really pleased with it,and yes,I will be calling in the smaller one more often,especially for Compost..

What a bargain Sandra! I just don't seem to be able to keep these plants. I'll be picking your brains on Tuesday :)

It was,Julia..I've only had it a week,so don't hold your breath ! Lol so far,so good :o) sending you a PM x

That looks to be a very healthy plant Sandra ... Mum used to have one on a North facing window ledge ... as you say it has a fabulous perfume. Well done on bagging a bargain. :o)

14 Mar, 2015

 

Thanks Shirley..mine is on a north facing window too..so me and your mum must be like minded.:o).I used to keep an Orchid there,which always did well..

It looks lovely Sandra, I expect in a week or twos time it will have doubled in size and be smothered in flowers! Whatever do you do to them?:-)

14 Mar, 2015

 

Thanks Ba..That would be nice..the flowers are opening up slowly now,and it smells lovely..As yet,I haven't done anything with it,except a light watering,and stood it on pebbles...it remains to be seen how well it does :o)
