Re: Too beautiful


Hi, Glen,

Wish all were raked up here!

Sisyrinchum grows wild in my hay fields.  To my dismay I found that it cannot
be cut for bouquets: it promptly wilts and does not recover.  I have grown it
from seed, which was not difficult; keeping the plants alive once planted out
was.

You might consider obtaining seed, sowing several seeds per cell, in a sharply
draining medium, and planting out these plugs rather than trying to plant
individual plants like I did.

Hope someone else can be more helpful.

Viktoria, on her way back out to screw work...
