Thanks Linda and Jackie. I think the trick was in buying mature lily bulbs to get them to bloom. After my yellow one bloomed I found a big grasshopper munching on it. Something is munching on my four o'clocks too, I was able to move those and save them from whatever was after it.

Pretty nice pink Crinum lily Jackie. It's nice to have so many blooms.

Well, I finally had a few come up in the seedling trays. I planted 8 different colors this morning, between 2 and 8 plants each. Now we will hope nothing eats them before they grow up. I have a feeling I will be putting in more tomarrow. Even the dwarfs had a little green showing, I need to decide if they should go in hanging pots or in the beds in the middle of the circular MG garden. So many of the ones I see in your pictures are what I am seeding, it's sooo exciting.

I bought some of double shepard hooks at Kmart for under $20.00 each. They are really nice and will easily hold two large hanging baskets. I have some thunbergia vines hanging on them now but will switch them out when my MG's take off. Shepard hooks are cool because you can easily move them for more of less sun. Unfortunately they are usually on the expensive side.

I have a morning glory tree about to bloom! I got a bunch of angel trumpet cuttings last summer, nd when I put them all in big pots this spring, this one looked similar, but different. Well, now that it has blooms, I knew it was not an angel trumpet, so I asked around, and was told it is a morning glory tree.
First picture of the fence line with all the angel trumpets, the tall one is the morning glory tree.
2nd picture is a close up of the buds.
I am anxiously waiting for this to bloom!

Oooh, thanks for posting the morning glory tree flower, I have three at 5" tall. They were the first plants in the MG garden. My seeds, although old, are sprouting well. I will be planting and putting up some deer netting tomarrow. I have way too many chocolate silk sprouting, I may have to put them on the wire fence down by the greenhouse and take a chance the deer will get them. I have two mommas and three baby deer that come through nightly. I have strung "irish spring" bars in my flower garden and it keeps them from eating my hollyhocks. Maybe I'll use some of that near the MG's, it's certainly a cheap method of repelling deer, and not near as nasty smelling as the commercial stuff.

Those ornery deer ate the tops off my "moulin rouge" sunflowers last night. They also ate all the flowers off the gladiolus.

Do you have Irish spring bars in your garden? I have heard that if you cut sliver and hang them, it is supposed to repel the deer? We don't have deer here, so I don't know if it works.

Helena - 3" is pretty good size, but they look like giant brug size blossoms in the photo.

Linda - I have been buying those little party mint bags at the Dollar store and then putting half a bar of Irish Spring in it and placing them as close to the tops of the plants as possible. Shaving it into pieces sounds like a good idea too. The soap cuts well with just a pocket knife. It's been working pretty good for my hollyhocks, they obviously don't like the smell. I wonder if I stuck it in gopher holes if it would send them a runnin' too, LOL. Or maybe really low to keep the bunnies at bay. Only problem with using this kind of deterrent is everyone who walks through your garden has to ask "what's that?"

The little red orange mg's & my "pumpkin" have always stayed open all day. I've always had those for my hummingbirds though they can be invasive, seed themselves everywhere.

Linda, found the thread where Sarah introduced us to her beautiful mutant bloom. Ron makes a statement or
explanation re the diluted bloom.
Hope I've got the right link.

You're welcome. I wish I had more time so I could go back and re-read some of the old posts.
Some great info in the old threads.
One thing I found was the name of our mg tree, Its carnea but I had long since forgotten it.
I used to call mine Carnea ssp fistulosa but subspecies fistulosa is not correct. I used ssp because the lvs on the regular carnea are huge compared to the slender lvs on my carnea.

Very nice blooms Jackie and Linda. Thanks for that into on Sarah's diluted bloom too Jackie.

My diluted fuji no murasaki x keiru mg had 9 blooms today but it just doesn't want to produce seeds & I hand pollinated them too. Last pic of Pink Porcelain x chocolate cross.

Your DFNM x Keiryu is a beauty Helena. I like your Pink Porcelain cross too.
I hope you get sd pods from your hand pollination.

Thanks Jackie. Some of my vines are already done for the season. I started my vines early so this year they are done early too.

Nice color on your Hatsu Arashi Jackie.

My MG seedlings are taking their sweet time growing. Any suggestions to get them going? Summer is coming on sooo slow here. Our weather is just not hot enough to inspire growth. Great weather for weeding though and my garden will be nice and clean for barbeque time of year.

Thanks Helena. Mine are just getting ready to start

Dee you're in No Ca? I think you said it, a little too cool for prolific
growth. Will it hit the 80's there this summer?

I'm on the central coast of California, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The weather usually heats up here in June, but it is unseasonably cool this year. I wish they'd get to growing as I have been fighting the bunnies and the bugs to keep the little two leaf seedlings alive. I was losing a few every night but now the bunnies can no longer get at them and they have a deterent bug spray on them. I am happy I have a few perennial types as I think they will do well here and may even stay green through most of winter. I will definately get an earlier start next year, just hoping to get a few flowers and seeds to save. It really has been an odd weather year. I spent most of the morning cleaning up my foxgloves which for some weird reason bloomed early and just kind of died back. There is new growth coming up from underneath and the newer seedlings are fine, but how weird, I think they may rebloom late this Summer.

Jackie, I'm glad you'll be getting more blooms soon.

Dee, I use bloom booster to get them going and for more blooms. I may have mine get too dry before watering them.

Had one nice big bloom today from this purple-plum, 1 plain & 1 fancy bloom.

Very pretty Helena. I really like the 3rd bloom, the shape and the way you captured it.

Mine are growing by leaps and bounds cause its hitting 90-96 here everyday. Mine are in the shade mostly to keep them from getting burned.

Linda threre are lots of diff fertilizers. Even Miracle Grow makes a SuperBloom.
a balanced fert is 20-20-20, 15-30-15 encourages blooms without being too strong.
a 24-8-16 is great for Hibiscus they don;t like high middle #
Miracle Grow is just a brand name. Sometimes the brand names aren't any better than say the Peters which is my favorite. They,Peters, had trace elements(minerals) in theirs and at one time, Miracle Grow did not list any in their formula.
What I wonder is might it be too cool where Dees at for the fert to be effective and not burn the vines since they already resent the cooler temps?

I have a good time release fertilizer I get from a greenhouse supplier locally. A lady who runs a wholesale nursery for landscape contractors told me about it. I could crawl around and put a little bit around each seedling, maybe if I'm feeling particularly limber I'll do that, LOL. It was 68 today, a far cry from 80. July is usually miserably hot. . . miserably hot for a California girl is 80. I hope I can grow morning glories here.

Dee 68 is cool for mg's to show rapid growth. Hopefully it will hit 80 soon and they will take off. If they
don't, you can try inside growing next. It might not be so much the 68 during the day as it is the 55 or so at night that has them stymied.

Thanks for all your advice. I'll post pictures when they finally do something. I still have hope they will all of a sudden start growing, my datura are kind of doing the same thing and one of them tripled in size this past week.

Had to move my mg's into more protected areas in case the storm came our way. More repeats but I think quite nice.

(Edit) Thanks Jackie, I didn't know what to expect from GS. (sp?)
