Ooh I am so disappointed. I planted seeds for a "Frosty pink" Brugmansia. The flower has just opened and it is Yellow!. Does any one know if the soil makes a difference. The first plant I had was a plant from a seed catalogue, about 8" high.The first year the flowers were a coral colour. We wintered the plant in the porch, it survived, but that year the flowers were yellow and yellow every year since?? I do not understand.
It was only supposed to go down to 3 degrees and it went to -1 where we are. Frost on the car and on our plants. Waiting for the sun to reach them to check for damage.
We did take precautions yesterday. I gathered the seeds I wanted to save, picked the tomatoes and cucumbers. We also moved into the porch our two pink Brugmansia, they have not bloomed as of yet. I started them from seed in the spring. Our Spring was so cold they got off to a poor start. They do have buds on them so I am hopeful.

The trees in my area are beginning to turn colour. So it is garden clean up time, cut off all the dead stuff. My sunchoke was showing extreme fatigue, but the birds loved it, so we did cut is down and moved it out front where we set up bird feeders. Now that they have found the bird feeder in front of out kitchen window, we will move to the very front, hoping to speed up the birds finding that feeder. There is still lots of sunflowers in my neighbours yard. But I can hope.
