Curry Plant

Curry Plant (Helichrysum italicum (Curry Plant))

Aromatic Curry plant (not culinary) in a tub with a lolly-pop-head Bay Tree behind. This is a reminder to take cuttings as it is getting very straggly.

Which the bay tree or the curry plant,?.....we used to have a curry plant, it must have died in last year's wet!!

Both have been in the pot a long time and both need replacing. I will take curry plant cuttings in Spring (June is the recommended time). The bay tree, I have cut most of the top off already, but it needs replacing.

I love the colour and structure.

It is rather a good shad of grey, Terra, as for the structure it now is rather old, tall and straggly, so needs a drastic prune, and I will use the prunings to propagate and replace.

Yes, I have some of these .. must try to propagate from cuttings this year.
