i have a large garden but i have run out of new plants i know you're from all over the world - any ideas.Are there any really unusual plants (not the ones that go up in smoke)i've got the cape gooseberry. and all the local spanish ones plus some catus and prickly pear. have you any edible plants that are different, or just beautiful. then i could try and find the seeds or bulbs.let me know what you have found in other parts of the world.

Try a local botany or flower society, mally. Some seeds are hard to comeby or some plants germinate better using cuttings. Also, plants that grow well in certain climates might not do as well (or too well and choke off other plants in your garden) in your area.

I planted two fantastic shrubs last year, and they've grown into two of the most beautiful plants I've ever seen.

They are called Duranta Repens, and they are almost always covered in small, blue flowers. Amazing!

mally, i could give you a list of edible, herbal and medicinal plants, bulbs and flowers...but these are tropical flora...are most of them that i grow are from the tropical rainforest...i doubt u can get them -even the seeds - from nurseries over there!
