I checked the yellow envelope in which Chrissy sent Allan's seeds, and they were labelled the way I typed them above (i.e. pollen from Fernando). Here are two of those crosses looking very lanky because they've received insufficient light growing on the second tier of the mini-greenhouse. (Hence my trip to Bunnings to buy another one last week.) I don't dare take them out of the m-g for fear of what all the snails/slugs/hopping insects would do to them--you can see that something's been munching on them even in the m-g. I've been spraying with coffee but perhaps it was too diluted--either that or I'm breeding some super-caffeinated breed of bugs in my m-gs! Today I added some tea-tree oil to the coffee spray to see if it makes a difference. (I don't like using poisons.)

BTW, my seeds were dated spring 2010 ...

Oh no, Chrissy--what a loss!
