HYB - winter crosses
On an whim I decided to make a few reblooming crosses, Priscilla of
Corinth X (Pink Attraction X Pinkness), Violet Miracle X (White Reprise X
Suky). Made three crosses, two on Priscilla of Corinth and one on Violet
Miracle. My thoughts were; well I don't think anything will take but
it's good practice and maybe just maybe......
I went out today and surveyed the flowers, lo and behold there are three
seed pods. I have never made such late crosses before and I need a little
help. Has anybody had any experience with winter time crosses? Do I
need to worry about frost on the seed pods? What about mold, should I take
off the spaths? Will they ever mature? Any help would be greatly
