Re: todays events > acclimation

Ooooooh...I think that remark was telling enough, Rich!  :-)

&gt;<br>&gt;<br>> &gt; You know the old saying: if it works, don't mess
with it. Sounds<br>> like<br>you<br>&gt; &gt; have your stuff
together.<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt;<br>> &gt; FYI: just got back from my
class reunion, in

a little town on the<br>> edge<br>of<br>&gt; &gt; the sandhills called
Ord NE. Had a great time,<br>> trying to figure out who<br>&gt;
was<br>&gt; &gt; who. Guess that's part<br>> of the fun of class

acclimation<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; pot them
up<br>> in quarts and gallons. A lot will eventually go in the<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt;<br>> ground.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; Being July, many of these
little pots are<br>> pretty well-packed with<br>roots.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;
My philosophy: I<br>> don't like putting something like that directly
in<br>the<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; ground, so I pot to quarts, grow on a
little while until they<br>> stretch<br>&gt; &gt; their<br>&gt; &gt;
&gt; roots out and then put in<br>> the ground in September. Also, even
though<br>&gt; they<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; may be ful<br>><br>> l sun
plants, going from greenhouse to all day hot sun can<br>be<br>&gt;<br>>
&gt; too<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; stressful. Potting enables them to be
moved<br>> to shelter if needed and<br>&gt; more<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;
slowly<br>> acclimated to such conditions.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; This,<br>> of course, is extra work, and a small extra expense
for potting.<br>&gt;<br>> Do<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; you all think this is
necessary or am I over-doing<br>> it?<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt;

&gt;<br>> Stonehouse is a wholesaler only. In fact, at first

e said he<br>> would<br>&gt; &gt; only<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; sell the
flats for our<br>> nursery - no individual gallons for us. He<br>&gt;
knows<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; froom experience that it wastes a lot
of time to attend to<br>> a<br>customer<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; picking
out one here one there and<br>> won't do it. But for some reason<br>&gt;
he<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> softened and said, if while we were
touring the facilities we<br>> saw<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; something,<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; we could set it<br>> aside.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; We had the backs of<br>> 2 vans for plants.
I had also brought along 10<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> stacking produce
shells for flats. If things aren't too tall<br>> (the<br>&gt;
sides<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; are<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; about 9<br>> inces
high) , they can stack and you can get alot more in.<br>I<br>&gt;<br>>
&gt; use<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; these in the spring when buying flats
of<br>> annuals for the gardens.<br>The<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; back<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; of my little SUV will hold a dishwasher - just - so
its footprint<br>> is<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; small.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;
But I can get a dozen<br>> flats and several gallons in whe<br>><br>>
n<br>> I stack.<br>It's<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; much<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;
the way<br>> bread companies use bread trays.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt;<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; Fernwood has a little plant sale room.
Plants were in all<br>> sorts of<br>&gt; &gt; pots,<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt; many were cuttings or<br>> seed propagated, like the tree peony
starts.<br>&gt; They<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; might be leftovers from
their annual plant sale or possibly<br>> donated<br>&gt; &gt;
items<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; to help raise a little<br>> money.<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; And no, the<br>> Stonehouse plants
are not these overwintering in my<br>yard.<br>&gt;<br>> &gt; &gt;
Right<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; now they are all in my driveway.<br>> We
will schedule a day to get<

br>&gt; together<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> and<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; pot
them up in quarts and gallons. A lot will<br>> eventually go in
the<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; ground.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; We<br>> currently
have 7 nursery beds at the display gardens and<br>> after<br>the<br>&gt;
&gt; May<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and June sales in<br>> which we sold
almost 500 pots, we have some<br>&gt; vacancies.<br>&gt;<br>> &gt; &gt;
&gt; (the sales sell much more than those 500, that number<br>> just has
to do<br>&gt; &gt; with<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; what we<br>>
grow)<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Kitty<br>&gt;

in your yard?!?<br>&gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt; Didn't realize Fernwood<br>> sold plants. Thought it was more of
a<br>&gt; display<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; type place. Most
times those type places only have a<br>> once/twice a<br>&gt;
year<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; sale of cuttings<br>><br>> .<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Sounds like<br>> you
guys REALLY filled the van :) I didn't get nearly<br>as<br>&gt;
&gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; &gt; many plants, of course I didn't buy flats of
stuff<br>> either. Are<br>they<br>&gt; &gt; open<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt; to the<br>> public or just groups.<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; Hoping the weather hold out,
planted a few last night. Hear<br>> that<br>it<br>&gt; &gt; will<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; be in the 90's<br>> this weekend when I have time
off...yuck!<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;

&gt;<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; So did<br>> we! 7 of us (MG
Nursery Group) visited Fernwood and<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> Stonehouse<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; today. One woman bought a<br>> couple of plants
at Fernwood, but<br>they<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> really<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; didn't have much. The one I<br>> liked was
Iliamna rivularis,<br>Mountain<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;<br>> &gt;
Hollyhock,<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; which they told us had<br>>
been propagated by Russell Stafford.<br>They<br>&gt; &gt;
gave<br>&gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; us<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt; a<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; nice tour and it's
beautiful place, but Stonehouse<br>> is where we<br>&gt; laid<br>&gt;

inch pots and will be<br>&gt; &gt; grown<br>&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt;
&gt; on<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; for resale. We were<br>> also
able to get 16 gallon items for<br>&gt; ourselves:<br>&gt; &gt;<br>>

sighs<br>> when we saw this or that prized item<br>&gt; wasn't<br>&gt;
&gt; &gt;<br>> &gt; &gt; for<br>&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; sale. We
