No worries, @pelly .. do let me know if you find the seeds for this one online. If not, I'll try to bring a seed pod with me and mail it to you once I'm settled.

Excellent - I suppose you'll need to sow them right away to get flowers later this year. I wish you good luck with them!! @pelly

I looked these up as I'd never heard of them and we can grow them here Pushkraj. 😊😊

Oh absolutely, Jane! The seeds for these are sold in the UK as tropical climbers. I'm not sure how they'd survive the winter, but they flower in the first year, and set seed very easily, so you'll be able to grow them. The most common ones are white and blue/white, and each of these comes in single or rosette type flowers. I've picked some rosettes now, will tag you in a snap. @pelly

One of my childhood obsessions, Jane :) I've three varieties now. This flower also comes as a double rosette, in blue and in white! @pelly

The White, single variety of butterfly pea! Fun fact: The local name (Gokarna) is derived from the shape of the flower, which resembles cow's ears! #white #vine #climber

Lovely! Do think of me when you have seeds :-)

Pushkraj

@AnkitaPKarthik can I simply pop them into an envelope and post them? They're tiny, so I need not courier them right??

comment
AnkitaPKarthik

Do pack them in waterproof lining, both the seeds and the envelope. Seeds might rot as it's raining heavily here, and the post office guys refuse to deliver if the envelope is damaged in any way.

Oh and thanks a ton :-) do let me know if you need any seeds, I'd happily return the favour if I have those seeds. Or if you'd like I can send you a surprise seed, risking duplication :-)

I'll post them in the last week of August, if that's alright :) @AnkitaPKarthik

@AnkitaPKarthik I've had excellent luck this week. My Mediterranean Lavender (Lavandula viridis) and banana passion fruit (!!!!) have finally germinated!

@AnkitaPKarthik since you live in Delhi, which is more important a city than Pune for obvious reasons, do you know if you have a Trikaya at the local mall?

comment
Pushkraj

@AnkitaPKarthik the thing is, Trikaya sells herb pots in select Indian cities. These plants include lavender, and I'm absolutely mental about them (I'll tag you in a bit). they don't sell these in Pune, but may do in Delhi.
