Friday 13 April 2018 • Was surprised to see the Plectranthus amboinicus poking through the top of the hedge! 😳 It’s climbed about a metre up through the bush. Wanted a better view perhaps? 😂 #Plectranthus #Plectranthusamboinicus #grownfromcuttings #cuttinggrown #variegatedPlectranthus #frontgardenbc #foliage

Friday 13 April 2018 • Was surprised to see the Plectranthus amboinicus poking through the top of the hedge! 😳 The Plectranthus is lower left and part of it has climbed about a metre up through the bush (see top centre of bush). You can see it more clearly in next pic. Also here: dwarf mondo grass. #Plectranthus #Plectranthusamboinicus #grownfromcuttings #cuttinggrown #variegatedPlectranthus #frontgardenbc #tenacious

Friday 19 May 2017 • Plectranthus is easy to propagate. These cuttings have been growing in water outside for a few weeks and are ready for planting out. #plectranthus #plectranthus-propagation #backgardenbc #plectranthus-cuttings

Friday 28 April 2017 • This variegated form of Plectranthus amboinicus was grown from a cutting. I've just pinched the tips out to encourage more lateral shoots. #Plectranthus #Plectranthusamboinicus #grownfromcuttings #cuttinggrown #variegated #frontgardenbc

Thursday 9 February 2017 • This is a variegated form of Plectranthus amboinicus. It's known by many names including: Mother of herbs, French thyme, Indian mint, Mexican mint, Big thyme, Cuban oregano and Queen of herbs. Phew! It has very aromatic leaves, with a scent comparable to oregano and can be used to add great flavour to meat dishes.
