Plants have a one-track mind. All they want to do is reproduce. Sometimes we forget this. But sometimes it’s so blatantly obvious that we can’t avoid it.
Take my Blueberries for instance. These two plants are the same variety (Chandler), the same size, planted at the same time in the same sized pots, into the same ericaceous compost. One of them, however, has ripened all its berries and had them picked. After which it has promptly gone into Autumn mode in a bid to conserve energy for next year’s bee fest. The other one still has berries to ripen and is still looking all lovely and luscious.
Blueberries eh? Whodathought it?
