Planting time

The rains are here and I am so proud of the plants which I have suceeded in not killing.

I germinated 3 out of the 5 I have there right now. I do not know what the white flowers are called, I have tried googling it and asking people, but no one seems to know the name.

The ones that I have germinated are the croton and a verbena. I am posting some pictures.. the new saplings have been transplanted into new pots (and with a little extra water, hoping that dries up by tomorrow).


  1. Ah, nice little garden. The white flowers are called Sadaphuli (सदाफुली) in Marathi and from the Vinca class of flowers, I don't know the exact English name.

  2. Ah pretty white flowers - they look so pure and clean, don't they?
    Good job on your plants!

  3. Lol@ did not kill them! :P
