I'm hoping for good things

Postby Eeyore » May 03, 2009 11:50 pm

I started all these pots of seeds and lilies a few weeks ago. I hope that all the perennials are a decent size to plant out by the time fall gets here.

It would be interesting to know if u have any luck with some of those Lyn. I tried a late winter sowing of Delphinium this year and have nothing showing so far. I'm thinkin' it probably didn't get frozen enuf.

Best of luck with yrs. :)

I chilled the seeds for about a week before I put them out. I sure hope they grow. I'll keep you posted. The balloon flowers are starting to germinate but nothing else yet. Most of the lilies are showing now. A couple of them are still in hiding.

When they all sprout (see how optimistic I am) and get bigger will you put them in the ground? Fall seems far away for planting them.

I'll plant when they are big enough. Last year I left Columbine in a large planter right up until the fall. I'm hoping to be able to plant earlier this year.

LOL! Sounds like me Smitty. Nope, no snow this week... sunshine and teens most of the week. around about 5 overnight. Probably safe to move the greenhouse out now.
