last year i ordered Autumn Jester,
Blueberry Tart, Grape Cordial, Double your fun and Midsummer's Dream, and i
thought it was enough What Again's children, but seeing your picture i regret
not having added Flirting Again!
i daubed the pollen of many on Concertina,
with very poor results!
Nevertheless, i got one pod last year with
Eternal Bliss' pollen, and i've got one pod now, with Forever
Thanks so much for all these pictures,
the SDBs are long gone here , (now it's the last week for the TBs) and
seeing your pictures confirms my preference for the smaller ones , among which
the IBs are my favorites!
1500 seedlings are replanted so far, still
500 to go.
The rain has prevented me from digging
enough beds, hope next year i'll be wiser and have everything ready
600 pods are proudly showing off; now most
flowers are gone, it looks like a fiels of cucumbers!
Thanks again for all your

Loic! Here's a rebloomer . .. but this is only it's spring
It seems to be pod fertile, but two crosses using it's pollen
on Plum Twist turned up zero pods. I'll just have to be patient.
experimenting with reblooming space-age medians? After I took these photos
tonight, I pollenated both blooms to IB
