Absolutely love to get in the garden when I can. Love birds, fish and plants. I live in the heart of Sydney suburbia on an average block of land

Thank you @terrimclaughlin I love it too. Although this has the common name of blue ginger, it is not a ginger but more relaxed to the wandering jew and tradescantia 😊

Thank you @brightcolours @latebloomer @MTurner. Debra no this is not perfumed nor edible it actually is not related to any gingers

@latebloomer we are all learning all the time, that's what is so great about gardening. These are deciduous perennials so you might get away with a sheltered position. The common name is what confuses a lot of people

lesliecole49

Don't feel embarrassed for sure Deborah! @latebloomer, I'm a newbie at this too. You can read books all day but, the best practical info comes from experience, you have to talk to people who've done it they know. I was going to ask if it was edible, but you beat me to it. You guys are up a little earlier then us

lesliecole49

I've really only had the opportunity in the last 10 years Deborah, and mostly houseplants and small plots at the few places available. I just bought a big never gardened yard with huge potential and years of practice ahead of me. @latebloomer @nej and I will be doing very little vegetables.
