Oh My goodness. I am happy someone replied. Thank you so much. I was starting to think I was alone LOL! Do you grow brugs avidly? I am still in my first year and an having a lot of fun doing so. Most of my babies are still very small but I am hopeful.

Rhapsody Hurray!

Hi Rhapsody,
Sorry I did not respond quickly. This site is like a ghost town. All the posts seemed to stop summer of 2011. I almost did not come back and actually could not find my way back.

I am in Ohio so Brugs are tender here. I only have 2 Brugs: Charles Grimaldi and Pink Beauty. I was given both. One as trade and one just because. :) I bought one on Ebay, but only had it 1 year and it died.

Hope you are still checking in.

Tell me about your Brugs.

Pandora ~ Thanks for checking in. I got hooked last year to brugs. I have many clippings doing their thing in the back yard! The ones I have seem bloom are : Angle Exotic, Ann Sessions, Charles Grimaldi, Delta Dawn, Dr Seuss, El Dorado, Flamenco, Insignis 'Yellow', Isabella, Knightii, Lisa, Melon Kisses, Miss Emily Mackenzie, New Orleans Lady, Orange Rapture, Pink Dragon, Pink Suaveolens, Rosalao, Rosenquartz, Tiara, White Magic, White Suaveolens, White Suaveolens Veriegata. Supper happy. At first I killed soooo many cuttings. I think I have the hang of it now LOL.

They sure take up a lot of time but I love my garden. So far so good. I am happy to see there is life here besides me. I thought this might turn into the Rhapsody Show. I need someone to talk to besides myself so please check in. This is a nice group but I would like to see some of the members here saying something and posting picts. A few more emails from us and maybe this group will come alive again.

Rhapsody,
I am glad there is life here too. I cannot believe how abandoned all the garden forums are. Not really anyone is trading. I can see up to 2011, it was booming and now almost nothing. It must be the economy. I quit posting for a couple years and now come back and so shocked to see this. Have you been to AllThingsPlants or GardenWeb? There is a little more activity there.

I'll check in here every few days to see if you are here. If I need to stop posting, I'll let you know. :)

You have a great bunch of Brugs there. Wow!. My brother used to live in Long Beach, now in Lawndale. Your weather makes it a little easier to have lots of Brugs. I have to chop mine down to a gallon pot & about 3 ft tall to bring in the laundry room for winter. ugh LOL

I put my 2 Brugs on the deck to get more sun b/c it has rained so much for a whole month, but some leaves are turning yellow. I've read it is too much afternoon sun, so I moved them yesterday to get morning sun and protected from afternoon sun. We'll see.

Talk soon,
Pandora

Hi again,
I did so good taking pictures for a while and the last 2-3 years nothing. Here is a picture of B. Charles Grimaldi the first year I had it.

lol, I am sure it is small compared to yours, but I was thrilled !!! It was still only in a little pot, maybe about 5" square.

Pandora,
CG may be small be she is beautiful. You just keep growing! Yes I belong to AllThingsPlants... slow over there too in the brug department! GardenWeb and Dave's are off the hook!. But that is why I want to post here. This looks like a good place to be but needs some new blood to be excited (me) and some old bloom to add their two cents (you). I am going to fiquire out how to add some pictures to my post so you can see my babies.

Would be nice to see some of the moderators post a thing or two as well. I guess for now it is just you and me!

Rhapsody I tip my hat to you.

I joined Dave's about 2000, but is confusing. Tried to search lists for trading and spent hours and never seemed to find a trade. Maybe there is a trick to it. Lol

My brugs leaves are getting greener in new location. I thought they wanted full blazing sun. Was wrong.

I might retire next year. If I do, I'll definitely be trading or buying a few more.
All for now, have a great weekend. No sure if I'll get on much.

Don't abandon me! You are my only friend!!!
On Daves they have a section for trades. it is under communities (http://davesgarden.com/community/)
Once your there, type into search the name of what you are looking for (http://davesgarden.com/community/trading/) .
Just figured that out.

They moved athis group over to All Things Plants. After they did that , this group slowed down. it is good to see people still posting and wanting and growing brugs.
We finally got our first freeze here in Ga. My poor plants are now no longer so beautiful. but Spring will be here before we know it and the plants will be coming back from the roots and what i have stored away in the little greenhouse.
So glad life is returning to this site. Welcome to you all....Thumb of 2013-11-19/Ridesredmule/5a1264

Thank you~ It is still my first year actively gowning, I have had a lot of help along the way. I belong to many groups. I think this one could use some help. I will try to answer what ever questions you have. What I can not answer there are lots of people here who can. Hope the pop in!

You are so sweet. I guess they thought everyone would move over there but there is always a few who find us or come back. I like it here. We started out in Dave's Garden, but something happened and he created this Cubits site, then went on to AllThingsPlants. We are more diverse here and the other site he just wanted plants. Which is great, I love plants but we all love to wander around and see what else is going on.
I try to be Helpful to everyone on whatever site I am on. So, you all pop in and I'll try to be in here with you. We love meeting new folks and finding out what Brugs we are all interested in. I love them, I know I got the Brug Bug....
