Crocuses are blooming here  --  popped out day before yesterday as soon as the snow melted.  Nice fragrance in the air, too.  Freezing nights and near-balmy days are a prescription for heaving, but, thank heavens, I've seen none yet.  Planted late stuff deep and mulched heavily on the first-year seedlings.  So far, so good.  --  Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] Iris Seed Germination

I think were all anxious for bloom season to arrive.  Still three months away here in Colorado but I do have some seeds germinating.  First photo is how the seeding area looked the end of January.  I covered the "A" frame the 5th of February and two weeks later I have a few seedling poking their leaves through.  I keep a little heat (very little) inside at night to keep from refreezing - 38 to 40 at night.
