Eeek!!! My Calamondin is starting to bloom!! πŸ₯° When I first got her last year she had just fruited... I read they generally bloom in winter to fruit in spring/ summer... Though I do live in Scotland and it's been a funny year! Lol it's like winter was delayed by 2-3 months (December was actually quite warm and sunny... April, so far, had been torrential rain and it hit -3 the other night!!). Also, the previous owner really hacked her to bits after harvesting the fruit! But still left loads of stalks attached... Anyway, she came out of quarantine and went under my grow lights and I've been thinking about repotting her because the soil seems a bit aquaphobic tbh (I only noticed when I accidentally top watered her one day when my perimenopausal brain was elsewhere! Lol and as 2023 was the Year of the Gnat, I don't top water ANYTHING usually! 🀣) and was starting to wonder what I was doing wrong but... Here, this morning, her first new bud is coming! In fact there are a half dozen now visible but this was the first one I saw lol... and I'm in love all over again!

No point squealing with excitement at hubby... He doesn't give a sh*t and literally thinks I'm bonkers for having so many plants (I'm sure many of you can relate?! πŸ€”πŸ€£) so decided to Greg It Up for a bit of love for my girl Cally πŸ₯°
