Seedlings Update, April 6, 2011
What a crazy and weird spring, if you can call it that, we are having this year. I want some of that Global Warming back and pronto. Some of my seedling flowers are blooming (both Snapdragons and Zinnia), one variety of tomato (Mountain Magic from Johnny’s Seeds) is ready to be planted into a bigger pot or even ground and right now we are having small snow blizzard going on! Looks like I will have to bring another table into our sunroom because lot of the plants will have to be transferred into larger container.
Snapdragons only basket.
Check the 3 nipped tips of snapdragons (pointed long leaves)
I have already done two hanging baskets – one with Snapdragon Lampion seedlings only and one with 4 Lobelias and 3 Snapdragons. Snapdragons are actually cuttings as I saved the snipped tops, dipped them in growing hormone powder and chuck them in the basket. They are doing fantastic and look just like ordinary seedlings.
Nasturtium, Lobelia, Cosmos and Snapdragons.
Red Pearl Millet, Thunbergia, Cosmos, Petunia and Zinnia.
Zinnia in bloom.
Snapdragon in bloom.
Nothing leggy about these tomato plants.
Eggplants on left and three variety of peppers.
I need a miracle in order not to lose any of my plants. On the bright side, I am learning!
And, how can I forget our beautiful Bougainvillea! Only 4 leaves and rest is flowers.
