TB: HYB: bloom season is upon us (or at least me)


Bloom season has definitely arrived. Two buds have opened on Louisa's Song. I
saved all the pollen for a better match, but had to settle for Best Bet as a
pollen parent. Next week some more interesting matches will be available. Two
open Double Dribble buds were introduced to Epicenter. Could produce some
interesting colors in vigorous plicatas. Watching for a Shenanigan x Epicenter
BB seedling to open. Return To Sender just opened; it is similar to its parent
Double Vision except for a disappointing mostly-white zone around the beard.
Too bad, because it seems to grow better and the colors and pattern are
otherwise great.
Lots of others in bloom or coming up soon. Maybe only 25% so far, but it is
early. Looks like a great bloom season.
