Re: re: my hybridizing question

In answer to Chad's questions , how to get a black rebloomer and how to get a
black Space-Ager,  let me try>  Use the darkest rebloomers you have, and
intercross them. Also cross dark rebloomers with the best-growing  blacks,
such as  BEFORE THE STORM.  One cannot tell for sure which seedlings are
carrying the rebloom, unless they do actually rebloom. But if you get a
really good seedling, save it, even if it does not rebloom, and cross it to a
rebloomer, or a rebloomer-carrier, (one that has yielded remontants , like
VANITY.  For the black Space-Ager, cross  your best blacks with the darkest
Space-Ager you have, and make several crosses. Then inter-cross  these, and
you should get a few close to your goal. I am currently trying to get
reblooming Space-Agers, suitable for the East and Lower East. Any further
tips from others will be welcomed by me as well as Chad. Lloyd Zurbrigg
