Re: orders arriving


No, we don't have a greenhouse. Usually plants arrive in mid April and later. Those I can pot and set outside. If we do get a cold snap I can cover them or bring them in. Now is just a wee bit too soon for that as our lows are 20s. Next week our lows will be 30s so we're getting closer.

Kitty, doesn't the extension have any greenhouse space you could use after
all you do for the area?

Blessings,

15 flags on plastic sheeting on my dining room table.
Flags? Is this a term I'm unfamiliar with? Oh, wait, or did you mean flats?

Oh, sorry, answered my own question. Not being facetious; I only just now
noticed the proximity of t and g on the keyboard.

I do wish spring would arrive. I'd like to move those cuttings out as they
are all popping with new growth. Even a flower bud on a Weigela cutting.

I've received several seed orders for our display gardens. This I
expected. I didn't expect plants to arrive so soon. Pond Mart in
Maryland
sent Cotton Grass plants a couple of weeks ago and today Greer's order
arrived - Verbascum, Penstemon, Erigeron, Cyclamen. Guess I'll have to
pot
them and keep them in the garage. I hope they'll get enough sun there.
currently that windowspace is being used by all my cuttings, a few
overwintering grasses and a couple more odds and ends. Wish I had a cool
greenhouse.
I'm having similar problems. With this sudden cold snap I now have about
15 flags on plastic sheeting on my dining room table. I turn the lights
up during the day and am positioning other lights around the table to keep
things growing without bolting.

It's an adventure, isn't it?!?
