Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Such tiny flowers but so intricate. I have a few stems in water but from previous experience I’ve learnt that they take a while to produce any roots. #patienceisavirtue #macro #globeamaranth #gomphrena-globulosa #upclose #cuttings #hydroponics 💚

Getting bigger and more lovely by the day! It was tiny when given to me by the very generous Claudia @clipperty but it’s a real talking point now. #plantsfromfriends #globeamaranth #containergarden #mygardentoday 06/08/2019

It’s ages since I did any #macrophotography so I mooched around the garden this afternoon and took about 20 photos. This is the tiniest flower I could find, a #globeamaranth given to me by the lovely Claudia @clipperty It’s an unusual plant but weirdly beautiful ♥️ #plantgift #containergarden #mygardentoday 25/07/2019

How’s it doing? They are beautiful little jewels aren’t they? The ones I have in pots have now got their long stems and this year I also plonked a couple in the border to see if they’d mingle nicely and so far, they do! X x

My one looks very healthy. Like yours, lots of long stems with tiny little flowers at the ends. Will it self seed or should I try to take cuttings? 🤔😘 @clipperty

Cuttings! Chop a bit and pop it in water - easy peasy. I found the original label from when I bought it ages ago at Sx P. £6.50!!!! But, money well spent. Talking of Sx P - me n @lcgardens plotting to go maybe next week - wanna come? X x x
