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!

The seed pod and seeds of the #jacaranda tree always fascinate me. I found this one in Spain last week so I’ll store them in a paper bag over winter and sow a few next spring. #seedcollecting #holidayfind

I already have one Jacaranda grown from seed collected in South Africa quite a few years ago. It’s a puny specimen so I’m hoping for a better result next time 🤞@sabbanrula

Here's the latest photo of my #jacaranda grown from seed I collected in South Africa a couple of years ago. It was twice this size in the autumn but it lost all its leaves in the winter (unheated greenhouse!!!) so I cut it back to 15ins in the spring. It's now doubled in height and is thriving. Good luck with the seeds I gave you @rachelbrooks @cassie26 👍👍

Wow! With this picture you answered a question I hadn't yet asked! I just saw some beautiful trees here in Florida (I'm on vacation) and it looks like they might be yellow jacarandas. I've been collecting several seeds, but after a quick google search it doesn't look like I have found any jacaranda yet. Can't wait to see (and try) what I HAVE found, though!

Great to see yours, and despite its haircut it's looking fab! Only hope I can get a little one going! We'll have to do it simultaneously Caroline so we can compare notes! 🤓😉 @cassie26

That is looking great ! We have Jacaranda tree lined streets and gardens everywhere in Australia. We had a big one in my family home and the colour display in flower is just stunning blue. Some of My family called me Jacaranda due to my name so this tree is special.Please post pics as it grows 😍

How lovely to be able to see Jacarandas in flower every year, Jacqui 😍 I envy you!!! I'll have to bring my little tree indoors for the English winter so I hope I can keep it going when it gets cold. 😘

I will! Hoping for the GT community to help me figure out what they are. I still have a few more days here, so my collection may still grow 😎

I sowed eight of these tiny Jacaranda seeds today. They will germinate fairly quickly and put on good growth throughout the summer but I can never get the plants through an English winter! 🌱🌱🤞🤞

Well done you for your efforts! That looks a beautiful plant from what I see as pics on the internet. Never seen one before though! Does it come to some height in one seasons growth? Does it flower?

Thanks for you comments, Sylvia. The growth varies depending on light and temperature. It has beautiful mauve flowers but sadly I don't think I'd ever get one to that stage! @SylviaDavies

These little Jacarandas are from seed collected in Cape Town earlier this year. #greenhouse #exotics #seedgrown
