There just wasn't room as most of them were quite large.
I did bring a pelargonium...
...which has since been planted in the communal garden, near a shady tree,
and my last three rose cuttings, two yellow and one red, all of which are also now in amongst the other, older rose bushes.
I also brought along this jade and three smaller ones in smaller pots.
This big one wasn't doing so well after about a week, because I'd had it on the front corner of my tiny porch and someone unknown had kicked or tossed it down the slope of the lawn. It had rolled down quite a way, with most of the soil being lost into the grass, so I plonked it back into the pot, put it back on the corner and started saving for some new pots. various neighbours said it must have blown off in the wind, but as subsequent gale force winds failed to move it, I'll stick with my theory.
I'd thought I might get some blue glazed ceramic pots. Large ones. Some of the other flat owners have these and they look really lovely, but after seeing how much they'd cost me, I hopped a bus to K-Mart and got plastic terracotta coloured ones.
Four of them, for less than the cost of one glazed pot.
I repotted the jades, and have put some large white pebbles on two of the pots as mulch, to stop the water evaporating quite so fast. I'll get the remaining two done when I get more pebbles. I thought I'd bought enough....
Looks pretty nice doesn't it?
I cleaned up the original small pots and planted a tiny sprig of jade in each one. I looked at them when I arrived home from work today and they've begun growing! Once they're big enough, I plan to pot them up and put them in the "back yard", out where the washing lines are.
I've heard that for the luck to work jade must be at both front and back doors.
