244 seeds from a cross of these two, 5 pods -
pink is IMM X CELEBRATION SONG, short TB or tall BB, makes a nice clump,
foliage susceptible to summer crud, decent bud count & branching
cream with yellow partial bib is TEA LEAVES X CHAMPAGNE ELEGANCE,
healthy, TB, med bud count, needs branching
Both put up a lot of stalks.
If odds are 1/36 of getting back to 'summer' (hot weather) rebloom
(i.e., from TEA LEAVES & IMM), should I plant all 244 seeds, grow them
for three or four years to give them all a chance to rebloom?
That's a <lot> of real estate. Or should I just plant 100 seeds, expect
36 to survive to bloom size, & hope for one rebloomer, pretend it's an
improvement over TL & IMM?
Or just file them in the freezer for a really bad pod year and hope for
a sucessful cross next year with better odds from 'better' parents? (In
this particular case, better would be prettier, not stronger, & I prefer
lots of stalks to super high bud count and busy branching in the garden).
I'd appreciate any thoughts on this. I have way too many seeds this
year to plant them all.
Thanks in advance.
