A New Month and some flowers...


And so we are into July, after the wet and cool start to the summer will this get any better, yesterday was fabulous, blue skies and sunny weather, but today we are back to rain, and it seems to be forecast for the rest of the week as well!

With the moist soil and sunshine we had over the last week several plants in the garden are now looking pretty good. The flowers above are on the hardy tree tomato, Cyphomandra corymbiflora, which is a relative of the common tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) and has a similar smell to the leaves and fruit. Well worth adding as an unusual plant in the garden.

  1. Does it produce edible fruits?

    1. It does fruit, although I don't think they are edible.

  2. Did your plant survive the hard winter a couple of years ago? If so, the moniker hardy tree tomato is surely justified.

    1. Yes it survived the bad winter, although was damaged. It soon grew back.
