Re: there is hope


Cool. Have you ever tried to make dye with the indigo? Apparently, it was one of the more important crops the colonies exported to Europe.

I started Indigofera kirilowii from seed last year quite successfully. They were just too small (4in pots) for me to want to trust leaving them outside for the winter. So I kept them in the garage (w some late Carex divisions & 6 tiny pots of species peony starts and one Jet Bead) The pots dried out and would not moisten up w more water; the water just streamed through them. I finally decided to bring them in to the cold back bedroom to slowly bring them out of dormancy. I soaked the pots for awhile to make them take a good soak so they'd be able to hold moisture again.

Just now I cleaned them up, disposing of lost leaves & debris. The jet Bead & most of the Indigo have some green buds or new shoots, so I think they will make it. The Carex is still green. And the peonies - Yes!, I see some eyes!

There is hope!
And I just started 40 more cells of Indigo a couple of weeks ago - all have germinated.

So far, photos don't come through. Congrats on the blooms. My first mini daffodil opened yesterday and there are fat buds on the forsythia. It's coming!

Hope this photo shows up - maybe I have to do a link for this board
instead of an attachment or insertion.? In case it doesn't, I can tell
you that I have several glorious patches of winter aconite in bloom.?
Now if the sun would come out, maybe the buds would open!
