Yeah, a phormium or two have been abandoned in an apartment complex's landscaping, so I took parts of two, one red and one green and divided them up....

Several of the Phormiums (phormia???) have survived, including this one. I always think of Niloufer whenever I inspect them. They had lots of Herb Robert growing beside them!!!



I'll show the others another time...

The plants are doing, 'alright'. Those that are in the ground and left to fend for themselves, that is.

However, I forgot about this one...

which decorates the Courtyard Garden of St. Andrew's Community Centre.  (See Rialto Men's Group on Facebook)

This, however is its normal position...where the senior citizens can see it while eating their lunch.  ;D

Well, a routine inspection a couple of weeks ago results in discovering one has been stolen...



To the thief, if he or she is looking in. If you want any more phormium, go to Bellevue apartments in Islandbridge. Over by the weir, there are several over there, abandoned. Take as much as you want. But please leave any in this location alone.  Magi tag.


Edit to fix the link.
