Re: Lotus qstn - seed starting

Of course they could start it from seed, but they won't. "I don't have space." I don't have time." Whine, whine. Well, *I* am not going to grow them for them and I'm certainly not having us pay freight on them. But what do you do when suddenly one year, purple is not chosen to be carried that year? There I was at Henry's Greenhouse surrepticiously unmixing the purples out of the mixed lobelia cells.

This year I got someone else to take over the spring shopping, someone who has more time. I can't keep going back week after week, checking every possible local seller to see if they've gotten in that one elusive item.

I just started 40 cells of Catananche caerulea, Cupid's Dart. If they germ I will contribute them to our MG nursery for us to sell. I'll start seed for my own group, but not for 15 other groups. BTW, I mixed the bicolor with the blue, hoping for a mix of the two in each cell. Thought that might be interesting. In the past I had good luck with the blue and a little luck w the white (bicolor). They usually bloom the first year from seed.

Even something as simple as purple lobelia

Kitty, this would be easily started form seed. Lotus would be easily found
in our area. I find it interesting that we are so close but available
plants are so different.
