Well, Little Louie finally bloomed, darker than spring and with scant 
beards, but holding on after 3 days. Magic Child started opening while 
still enclosed by leaves. It popped out this morning and got chewed to 
shreds by a slug. Witching is still trying....Ho Hum!
50% of my soaked and stratified TB's have germinated this week. They are 
growing in seed raising mix. Can anyone tell me if these will need a 
liquid feed before planting out? (some are 1.5" tall)
I have been watching them closely and am sure at least two seeds have 
put up pairs of seedlings (twins). I have read about this and will be 
watching these pairs closely to see what they produce. What experience 
have others had with this phenomenon?
Can anyone who has grown LA's from seed give me some tips? I'm expecting 
a small quantity in the mail shortly. They are collected from bee pods, 
from a test garden. Should I treat them as I did the TB's, or would 
knicking the seed coat with a knife be better? 
Regards, Jan Clark, in Australia
