I'm going to have to stop liking your flowers Kerry, it must be costing you a fortune in postage 😂 I never thought of collecting seeds from these. I have a pink one with its last flower, I'll have to keep an eye on it 👁‍🗨

It can, but growing these from seed could be a challenge, not that I've ever tried.

We decided to look at some discount racks yesterday and found an almost dead 'gerbera jamesonii eye catcher purple'. It was only $2.94 and the healthy ones we $12.00. So we brought it home, gave it a good watering and put it under a grow light for 12 hrs and it's popped back to life. Love the colour of your gerbera 😍

4w
comment
kez001uk

@gjones wow that’s an amazing discount! Such a shame that plants aren’t taken care of in some shops but it gets us a bargain and requires just a little effort to make them healthy again 😁 a purple one sounds gorgeous though 💜
