I reworked one of the seedling display beds between the greenhouse and the street. I added about 4" of mushroom compost and tilled it in. Then I began transplanting selected 9-month seedlings from the greenhouse to this bed. The bed, 8' wide and 40' long will hold approximately 100 plants on 2' centers. I have gotten about 60 plants in, so have about 40 to go. Here is what they look like so far.
There are still a few new seedlings blooming in the greenhouse.
Seedling No. 2128 (Robert W. Carr X Home of the Free) A big old gaudy thing that really catches your eye.
Seedling No. 2132 (Rockets Bursting in Air X Barbara Mandrell) Another saturated red of very heavy substance.
Seedling No. 2125 (Angels Gather Around X Irish Halo) Combining the genes of Bill Waldrop and Larry Grace cultivars.
Seedling No. 2131 same cross as above.
Seedling 2130 (Razorwire X Irish Halo) Green teeth.
Life is very, very good.
