Re: CULT: HYB: pots?

<<Are those the shallow 8" top diameter "mum" pots, or were those in
Linda, The ones in the past were simply some that were 'pushy' little
babies! Several from a purple plicata cross, a red cross, and then the white one I
liked so much last year. They were in the mum pots where the soil had
sifted out the holes. Something like 2-3 inches of soil left in the pots! Some
just insist on being seen. <vbg>
This year I had 1 left over seedling that came up from 1709 (Visiting
Royalty x Summer Radiance) and I left it in the pot. It has a stalk now and I
potted it up to one of the big ones and moved it over with my 'delicate' pots.
This cross has such potential that I want to encourage any that still want to
grow. I don't want to risk failing to water it. One of the sibs had cream
standards, purple falls, and a red beard. May have lost it over at Jim's
Others were potted up to larger pots before I moved out here (Sweet
Addiction & sibs) and they bloomed in the pots the first fall (2003). With that
cross, I potted the 4 strongest up to the 12-13 inch pots. This was before I
decided to move back out in the country. I had that teeny yard.
Most everything I've wanted to bloom this spring has put up stalks already!
Don't know how I'm going to react!! If I start talking jibberish, you'll
know I went around the bend! Wait! That won't work! I already do that!
<vbg> I'll probably post pictures of seedlings? But if no one has heard from me
by the end of May? Send out a search party!
Mother Nature, don't stop me now!!
Where's my pillow???!!
If you don't cross them, you can't plant them! (AND I do plan to cross
