Thanks for the new thread!

Can anyone tell me what is a good time to plant seeds for next year? And once they start growing, how far along do they need to be to pinch back, so I can have fuller plants?

Beautiful Kikyo bloom Jackie.

Linda, I'll probably start my seeds mid or even end ofFeb. The weather here warms up so that I can have my plants outside by the end of March.
I don't do pinching back but I imagine that at 3ft you can pinch them back (the size of the 3 0r 4ft bamboo sticks).

Here's my Hatsu Arashi this morning, we had a light sprinkle so I'm sure this is due to the humidity.

Oh thats gorgeous Helena even if it was the humidity. :-) Love it when they do these crazy things they like to do.

Linda, I agree with everything Helena said. So hot next summer where you're at, that your vines will be huge in no time from an inside the house March sowing. I don't pinch mine, not on purpose anyway.
I;m in too big of a hurry for blooms and pinching sets them back a few weeks but the end result, more blooms, is probably worth it.

I kind of forgot about the vines being set back with the pinching, glad you mentioned it. Right now I have buds on some of my vines that are still very short maybe b/c they sense the short days.

I love your beautiful blooms Jackie. Your other plants are neat too. I get tempted to buy plants whenever I'm in Lowes but I also bought a lot of hummingbird plants over the internet that I grew long time ago and lost. I'm going to grow quite a few from seeds too.

Love your beautiful blooms too Debra. The big blooms sure make a statement.

It was quite cool here this am. Had 3 ridiculously small blooms but Berlin Blue was nice & the purps.

Jackie Pink Tye dye has so many beautiful variations here. so do the no mais. It is funny.. some were almost white, some almost all pink.

I'm watching my hummers chase each other and go to all my salvia plants. I'll have a few mg blooms tomorrow.

First 3 are salvia mexicana, the third is Betsy's purple and has a gorgeous purple color which my camera isn't capturing.
Fourth bloom is Subrotunda and last is Danielle's Dream. But I also have loads of red and coral coccineas.

Linda, if you're having cooler nites, could be thats the reason and they might still bloom for a while yet.
My Youjiros are getting smaller but not the Purps

Jackie, I love your gorgeous blooms especially the last 2. I agree, it doesn't look like Pres. Bush, also a little smaller than Blushing Bride but that could be due to the temps. Still beautiful.

Jackie, I'm looking forward a bloom from my Blue Marble Not beije seed. The bud right now looks light so I'm expecting a light bloom but I'll be sure tomorrow.

a light colored bloom. I bet it will still be a beauty.

Awesome blooms and picture of no Mai Jackie!

My Blue Marble not turned out to be a very faint Blue Silk. The green stem gave me a glue that the bloom was going to be light.
Maybe that was one of the parent that was crossed to get the dark blooms, who know!

Another nice bloom from a medium lavender with light lavender stripes.

Karens2005 mauve mix

Pale pink

No tag, not sure which it is. I found quite a few inch tiny baby worms eating leaves of the mgs, got the bloom a bit on this one.

Lovely blooms Helena. The light Blue Marble Not could produce a completely diff bloom when it blooms
the 2nd time. 1st bloom not always a true indication
The Purple/Lav Tie Dye type is very pretty,
Your Mauve Mix from Karen reminds me of how my 1st Pres Bush blooms looked a few yrs ago.
Love the colors.

I like your Pale Pink and the Youjiro too. I've had problems with the tiny inch worms too.

Look at this No Mai finally looking like my orig blooms several yrs ago.

No Sora, I;'ve enjoyed these a lot and hoping to restock my sd supply
Lovely Purple Tie Dye

Helena, your last bloom looks like it could be a pretty Purple Fuji instead of Youjiro

Linda, I don't know about your blooms. Its plenty warm there so maybe they are blooming out sensing the shorter day length
I guess you could try some fertilizer and see if it helps. Our temps have warmed back up here so my Youjiros are larger blooms again.

Had this pretty Youjiro today.

Choc Silk

1st bloom on Blue Sazanami, a strange looking bloom for sure, lol

Love your sis' Glories on the miaibox. Nothing dresses up a mailbox in my opinion like our MG's.
Is that pretty purple bloom your George Strait?. Love your 4 o'clocks, the Pink Tie Dye and that soft pastel blue,,

Beautiful blooms Helena. I love all of them. You notice how much your Morning Star not resembles the Xiongs Chinese bloom color?
Your blues are wonderful.

Tai aki, I love the huge size of this pretty bloom, thanks Ronnie

Blue Tie Dye, one of my absolute favorties

Count Drac, thanks Gourd for sharing this one yrs ago. Still a favorite

Thanks Jackie and Helena. I also am glad Helena will have blooms for us to view. Those blues are electic and vibrant. Love the purple with the white stripe too. Transvaal has always intrigued me, I think I grew some from you, Jackie.. but didin't get a pod. I cut down sticto cardia tonight, and it is now down in it's spot where it bloomed last winter. My daughter would love that count drac, I am sure I planted those, too from you, but if they bloomed I have missed them.
The blue tie dye is also a favorite.
I hope Gourd comes here and sees the stripe grass she sent me.. I love it.
look at this caudex glory.. wish I could remember which one it was LOL
last pic is of stictocardia.

Jackie, your transvaal has nice blooms and I like the leaves and it's neat to see when the seed turn orange. I'll try to keep my mg going.

Debra, you have quite a green thumb and so does your sis. Your first picture looks like the wild mg. I see similar ones all over town here. I went by the first place Northwest of town and they mowed the whole area down but I did see several vines still around the sign pole. I ripped several branches with seeds and have them in water till they mature, might take awhile though. I also started several cuttings from younger cuttings and they took and are starting to grow. I'll have them growing in the gh this fall and winter.

I love your yellow 4 o'clock too.

Debra, I should get some transvaal sds and will save you a few. This one is tangled on the fence but hopefully I will harvest sds before any freezing temps occur.
The count Drac is a small statured vine and bloom. It starts off
slower than any mg as its a Kikyo actually and they're all small. Yours probably got covered up by the larger vines and thats why you didn;'t see the blooms.
Did you put your sticto in the basement? Love your yellow 4 o'clock and tuberous glory. Is it a platensis?

Dany, I no longer have any Blue TD sds but ordered the blue from Parks. Parks sds made purple blooms except this one which is in the large tub out back. I have to assume this one came out of the Parks sd pkt too. I have marked the vine and 10 to 15 blooms so hoping to gather sds. I love this vine and didn;'t realize it would be so hard to find the true Blue Tie Dye.

Thanks Helena,
Your Murasaki Blizzard is special and the colors are just beautiful on Mauve Star and the Choc silk.
Gorgeous pale pink and Silver Shadows, The cooler weather did something great to our bloom colors. :-)

I agree with Helena.. love the blooms you all are posting.. I have tried several times with cuttings sent to me and seeds of the snail vine or corkscrew vine,,, as good as I am with seeds, I fail at that one.. taking sister home tommorrow..
that blue tyedye is to dye for LOL
Thankyou for thinking of me with the seeds.. I was looking at last year and I have a bunch of the same from last year from my seed stash this year, but there are a few that I have not seen before, pretty sure from you guys.. anyway.. I love them all.

Debra, love your blooms but the blue silk is really neat. Time just flies way too fast. It's raining a bit here I know all the plants needed this rain but my mgs are inside gh and next to house for protection from too much of it.

This first bloom is lavender on light lavender, my camera changed it to blue. Don't know why it does that.

Thanks Helena. Ronnie and Debra. Deb, the BTD is to dye for, just gorgeous.
Ronnie, my snail vine is the fragrant one. The color slowly developing as its not in enough sun. Its
tangled now in my trellis and I can't move it. Thats all ok as I just want my pics and hopefuly a few seeds.

Debra, the Blue Silk is lovely. That will always be a favorite of mine like Fuji no Sora. I just don't get tired of our tried and true beautiful blooms. They're always pretty, yr after yr. I love all your others too
beautiful colors. Yours are showing out too in the cooler temps. The colors are showing up deeper and maybe truer. Your lobata very nice this yr.

Helena, your 1st bloom is a beauty. There are so many that remind me of the Tie Dyes that I can't tell them
apart most of the time. Its lovely whatever it is. Like your other 2 blooms too..

That's a very pretty soft pink Asagao.

I worked on repotting the rest of my mgs today. Now all I have to do is make sure I feed them with bloom booster. Some already have buds.

My 2 blooms from this morning were still open this afternoon but changing colors. Cloudy and raining here still.

morning all, from Rogers, Arkansas/ love all the colorful beauties posted...I have a whole bag of the white purp if anyone wants any right now...

sisters and my stapelia has not set blooms. not sure how long to take for them to set buds, and do u feed them like everything else?

was thrilled to see sister had saved some of the kikyos i sent her last year. In fact,,, she has four packets of jmg seeds I sent her last year from my grow outs so hope to see what they bring me this winter inside..
Helena, I found three more crossed four o clocks out back before we left, and one of them was a yellow with pink! yippe! have several cool colors for you now.
Star of India was always a breath taking beauty to me. I just popped in to see some colors here and am glad I did, it will be nice to see them in my memory as I drive back home today.
LYK is so cool! i have a new one blooming at home, it is a very pale pale pink almost white no spots of specks and looks like a purp bloom with i nil leaves, will post pics later. Also the white ten ten from Becky came back and is budded and blooming now. tons of shibouri and JL seed pods are all over the sunflower arches i made.. wish I could just drive on down and meet you, Jackie!

Thanks Helena and Debra. Helena, I looked it up to check out which vine I have for sure and mine is the corkscrew. Its the fragrant vine and the fragrance is wonderful. The snail vine is not fragrant from what
I can tell.
I'm not sure how long it takes for the corkscrew to germinate but Burpees says to nick and soak overnight in the hottest tap water.
If your sd is swollen the next morning, it should be ready to plant in sd starter mix.
Debra, I hope I have more color showing on the corkscrew vine tomorrow morning. Keeping my
fingers crossed that the sds mature quickly in case it turns cold soon.
