I photograph gardens, but my present garden is a lawn. Trying to figure out how to keep the rabbits away without putting up a fence.

This is my pink Datura, kept indoors all year. Very few flowers. What should I have been feeding it?

Not datura but brugmansia. Angels trumpet. She likes sun , big pot, good soil and water.

I said Angels Trumpet @lilium then thought I was wrong

@jaynehynesburton they do have quite similar flowers, easy to get confused

It's very pretty - looks like brugmansia to me too. The flowers hang down rather than point outwards or up.

Thanks, @lilium I had no idea brugmansia was distinct from datura. Thought it was just a name change. Been deluded for years! Would love to know the name of this pink cv. My guess is it's just rosea .

Ecuador pink 😊 By the way, common name for datura is Devil's trumpet. Daturas are growing as annuals, dont have tree stump and it's tall about half meter or so. And datura is beautiful, but extremely poisonous plant.

Brilliant, that's very satisfying to know. @lilium I've had this standard-shaped plant for years and it furnishes my kitchen. Good to be able to name it properly.

You should keep it outside during the spring, summer and until first frost. It will gave you much joy and happiness. You can see how did @wesleybrian grown his yellow trumpet . It was only small cutting at spring
