cotton on…the sequel


So anyways, remember how I told you that my Mum was growing a cotton plant in her backyard in suburban Sydney? The link is here.

Well, the buds have all burst- if that’s what cotton buds do.


She’s nearly completed the harvest and has a heap of fluffy cotton wool. One plant has provided a lot of cotton wool.

So, what’s next?

Seeds and samples are in the classrooms of my younger nieces and nephews, and more seeds have been saved for re-planting.

Knowing Mum she’ll plant them in between everything else.

    P.S. My mum would love some seeds to try if your mum is agreeable to share!

  2. Hee hee… I remember this post cos I wondered what would happen to the cotton wool once it’d grown. It looks amazing!
