few plants they offer at canadian tire over the winter are ever properly labelled beyond "tropical plant" and "fern", so i am guessing. i love the colour combination with the blush.
it was 11°C today, and i made some serious inroads in the backyard (which i totally neglected last year); cut down a lot of the blackberry canes that had grown up through the apple tree, and seriously pruned the tree itself, probably 1/2 of it. the tree is dying, but i don't want the landlord to chop it down. i don't really care about the apples, but the shade is really nice, and the cats like it. they'll like it even better pruned.
i'm considering a sealer for the pruning wounds. i don't generally believe in sealers; i think applied to a wet wound they often crack as everything dries, and are then even more susceptible to wood rotting crap getting in there. but this tree is already so weak that i feel i ought to help it out. i dunno. i should do some reading on what the latest research says.
