Debra, I hope you get your pandys. Pandy does something funny when it first sprouts, a double stem coming from the cotyledon if I recall correctly. Seems like one of your pics showed your pandy seedling doing that too.

morning girls and guys.. stayed up late seeding up more seed trays. no blooms to show, been missing them cuz of work. I dumpster dive the trash can at work for the cups folks throw away at the coffee counter.. we pay 14 cents a piece for them, i figure I can use them if I wash them out. some of the starbucks coffee cups are waxed paper cardboard, thought i would try those, what do u think?
colder than a witches tit here today went to work in 17 degree weather. brr!
I have all these bags of seeds I need to put in my work bag so I can send them off to who ever I didn't get any too.. Karen, Ronnie, Darrin.

Helena, I do like to use the 8 oz foam cup to start
mine in and then I pot up
to the 1 gal size nursery pots.But the vines I plant in the large tubs have healthier leaves than the vines
in the 1 gal size. They don;t dry out as fast in the lg tubs and stay more hydrated so less stressed.
You'll be moving all those up to large pots?

Blue Marble Not from 2011, different bloom than my 2012 BMN but just as pretty. Not a single sd did

Pretty bloom Jackie. I eventually hope to see blooms on my BMN this spring. I'm going to keep these seedlings in these cups for as long as I can. If it warms up good by the end of March, the special ones I might put into bigger pots, the others I just might put in the ground. I do think that the vines do better in bigger tubs and pots.

i have been untangling vines all night that have gone wild in the basement garden ( charlies room) I think a jl is about to bloom. something with white and a darker center anyways.. I see all kinds of seed pods on those vines, but have been missing the blooms. boo hoo

had a red with white edge tiny bloom in the pink bedroom, those vines are now starting to bud and vine.
have to git back down and finish my mess... hope it isn't 1 again when I come up, i got a clock to hang up on the main wall so I can keep track of time, i get down there and totally get lost..

Ohhh Patootie, you must get yourself a Paypal account. Unbelieveable the MG's they have there. Only thing is, some of the seeds are expensive, $ 2.99 for 5 seeds and $ 3.00 to ship but if you buy enough, they only charge you one $ 3.00 shipping charge. I've been reading the MG forums & I guess I will have to grow each different variety in a different pot this summer & keep them separated to discourage cross-pollenation. Dunno how you manage to keep all yours from crossing.

I Have to echo what both Ronnie and Jackie have already said. I do sell a few seeds on Ebay to help with my sisters cancer fund, but I nver sell any seeds from my dg friends. I just don't tag stuff very well, so I sell my back yard collections as mixes, open pollinated. no one from Dg has even known this, so open confession here. I do buy from Emma , when I want seeds special. Mostly I plant from trades. we have had some great group swaps here, but not lately. I have found other sellers selling the same things as Emma, only a few letters changed or re-named. I abhor that. ( spelling is off)
I have yet to ever be dissapointed by any of emmas seeds, but the best results and prettiest blooms are from seeds from these beautiful DG members here.
My sister is going to need money in the near future when her insurance gets cut off, one chemo treatment is almost 5k dollars. I am moving her back to Kansas in 6 months, providing the newest results are positive. She doesn't want to die away from her family here. I donate ten percent of what we get to the breast cancer foundation in her behalf. So far, we have only made about 300 dollars, but it cost us 80.00 to do it if that makes any sense. I am slowly selling all the old vintage items from our Great aunt effie, and now she is giving me ( my sister) some other antiques she inhereited from all the elderly matrons in our family, so the funds can grow. we always thought we would keep these items in the famly, but my kids and her daughter have no desire to keep any of the stuff. so be it. If you want a pack of my mix ( i sell 100 at a time in a pack. ) I will gladly send you some. I tend to get a lot of seeds because I grow a lot of vines and the tags blow off or fade out. Nothing named, but I love any glory.
Hope everyone doesn't shy away from me for trying to help my sister, but it is all I can do , since I am a poor stoke anyway. Seeds like the special one below, go to my dg friends ...because they came from my dg friends..

How do you plant a plumeria seed? anyone know? LOL



I wish we could have seen Helenas purple side of her latest show, the fuchia in the pink tells me it was a special kind of purple. I will never forget my first packets ever from DG members. I still have the empty packages. Some times, I want to send the packet back with what ever it brought, but i need a better tagging system and more rigidity.
I am going to show some leaves and vines, Jackie and Helena and Ronnie and Karen and.. LOL well everyone, and you all try to tell me what it might be ..

1>this one was in a "mix" bag from backyard 2>charlies room, west end wall 3> same wall moving north..4> it is all in one pot LOL 5>in a small seed pot..

Debra, I;m not sure what all you have there but at least one looks familiar,pic # 4. Note the large leaf at the top right of the picture. I had grown one like that a few yrs ago and again last yr. Note the hairs all along the stem. What caught my attention was the shape of the lvs. If that is the same vine as the one I've grown, it makes
a woodrose with the flower looking a lot like indica, same color. This vine was rampant for me, I grew one from sd this past summer but it didn;t bloom. That was because I didn;t keep it potted up to a large pot and it wanted to grow huge. Now my lvs have all dried up and fell off but I notice it has made an enlarged tuber so hoping it will come back. My vine made the soft thorns too. Ron had id'd this vine at one point in time but now I simply can't remember. Starting with an A???

Debra, I grew a Plumeria from sd one yr, very long time ago. I just used a good potting mix or sd starter mix and didn;t plant it very deep, maybe 1/4 inch deep. I waited till the first of March to plant it and I grew it to a good size, finally giving it to my friend who had her own plant nursery at one time. She grew it into a gorgeous Plumeria with
beautiful flowers.

Dear Jackie, thank you very much. the big leaved vine is hard to kill. i have divided it several time,it roots in the air practically. I have sent away at least 20 of these things already rooted, but i havn't heard if they bloomed for them. mine has never bloomed. it started out as a seed, and emma id it as a hedercera var lutea, but it has not bloomed, altho the smaller version that i have grown did bloom as an annual. this one does have a huge tuber. i can cut it off at the top root all the pieces i cut off and still get at least 10 20 ft long arms all over the patio from it. I am thinking of cutting it back before spring and see if that will do anything to it. maybe it needs cold to bloom? * shrug* it reminds me of a native i batata from somewhere LOL

Well, I've started seeding. I'm new to morning glories and got a late start last year and failed miserably
This year I'm starting now inside and in a week or two (after some weeding) I'll go ahead and put seed out in the garden too.
I'd really love to get a good crop of flowers this year, last year the only one that really did well was the "firecracker" plant.
I have one MG that overwintered in a gallon pot, I thought it was an annual, but I'm wondering what it is now, no blooms yet but the tag says it's blue.
Maybe it's a "blue dawn" and not a "heavenly blue" like I thought.

this special cacti was a gift from a dg'r, it has spread really nice, when it is done blooming I will prolly thin it out.. the red and white in the pink bedroom have been blooming non stop including all last summer, weird one that is.. i need to thin it out also.. it was a gift from my boss, he doesn't do plants and a business gave it to him as a christmas gift, he scooted it right to me three years ago, it gets so loaded and big it loses arms. poor thing.

Just a tiny arm off of the Peach Christmas Cactus will be fine. You have so much going on
that I hate for you to even bother with it. So don't be in any hurry on my acct. :-)

Thank you so much Debra. Will send you a d-mail with info and just let me know what you need as far as postage/envelope cost. Put some of the "grandpa ott" seeds in hanging baskets last year and they grew really well but didn't get much bloom--I think they did not get enough sun where I had them hanging!
THANKS again.

Love your close up shot Debra #3. I got lots of no Mai blooms that were identical to yours. To get the one

I am so envious of you guys who live in the S. states because your outdoor plants are starting to flower now. Thank God, I do have my greenhouse that my DH so lovingly built for me about 15 years ago. It's attached to the house made of old storm windows & cement blocks. I run a propane heater in it & keep the temp to about 50 degrees in the winter, but when the sun is out, I can turn the heater off & it goes from 70-80 degrees & that is when I water it because I can stand to be out in it from 60 degrees on up. Right now, I have an orchid in bud and all the Mother of Thousands plants are blooming their heads off. Also, some Christmas cactus still blooming, and my caudexed plants are starting to come out of dormancy. I do so enjoy being able to grow my plants in the Mid Atlantic states in the deep dead of winter.

Buttoneer, your green house sounds cozy..
Yep, that is one of my gorys I grew and sent seeds out of YAY! too bad I don't know a name sorry..
Had a kniolas black with a lavender throat blooming this am down in Charlies room, a red SOH, and a funny small duo colored one, I only got a pic of a couple, will down load in a minute, but wanted to thank all of you for being so patient, I sent out everyones seeds today. please let me know when they arrive as I didn't track them. sbish, ronnie, darrin, helena, lk, and jackie.. Ronnie your envelope looks crinkled cuz it got stuck more than once going thru the postage meter ( empty) but when you see it you will see why, the machine doesn't like the deep v flaps much..
Shut down the ebay store for a couple weeks until I get back from AR, sister called me and said she has all kinds of stuff blooming, but she didn't kniw what it all was, and I guess scoobie, her daughters bring home rescued dog, knocked down a plant stand and proceeded to eat what was in that planter, so waiting to hear if he gets sick.. so far he has eaten the back door off, the cable wires off the house, three metal lugs, and a ton of other stuff that she just finds pieces of on the ground. this dog is a puppy, but he is huge, a cross of pit bull and sharpe or however that is spelled, he is a sweetie but very big, sloopy wet kisses, and huge paws. He knocked her down this am and she cracked her elbow on the cement, but she says she is ok. I never had a dog to eat off the back door before.. have you guys?

My Fritzie is a 12 year old rat terrier and he has eaten a protonix (pill for GERD), one of my pills for a-fib and one of my Blood Pressure pills. He no longer is allowed in the kitchen after supper, until I take my pills & make sure none fell on the floor. The only thing he chews up is kleenex and leaves them in a conspicuous place where we can find them. He does this when he thinks he isn't getting enough attention.

Thank you... I am seriously thinking of moving the tall shelves to the center of the rooms with tlights. still waiting for a true whole month of interrupted power to see how my bill is supposed to go down ..Joe isn't Gardening this year. He thinks it will be fruitless yet we still have at least ten bags of frozen green beans, and we finished off the gold potatoes just a month or so ago, anyway, we will see.

that is a great garden plot! love it. ours is about the same size, and I bet Joe will change his mind if we get some rain.. here is hoping, I am still planting tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and cukes and squash. He just does the whole patch first in beans and taters, then when those come out i get the patch for my stuff.
we did a single row of beets last year, it was great.

Yea, he loves his garden!! As early things get done he puts in different things also! Loves to test out new things & that was just the beginning of his garden --it grew a little larger by the time he was done!! Below are some of his goodies he grew!

All pretty much self explanatory--last one is red potatoes starting to flower!

Can't wait for the "robin" to land here to see what new veggies might be in there for them to try!!!

This is our youngest sons' (13) mini garden!! He has his own small space that he does a garden in!! He picks everything that goes in it each year and has to take care of it!! Sometimes things don't go so well together in his space -- but that would be why we call it his "trial & error" garden!!! He loves it!!

The corn in his garden is popcorn!!

Looking forward to seeing what might be in the "robin" for him to try in his garden!!

All of our gardens , veggie & flower, are a mixture of screened top soil & compost (purchased from city) because our whole yard is bricks & rocks about two inches under the grass!! Only spot we haven't had to "modify" so far has been way in the back by the back fence!! LOTS of work when initially starting new gardens around here!!

Love seeing the blooms Debra and Helena!

sbish nice looking garden plot, I so not a veggie gardener, a tomato or to is about it. My neighbors do a huge one so I just pick from theirs. We do have a grape vine and tons of grapes come August. can't even give them all away. The Mockingbirds and Catbirds love them.

Our late Atticus ate a sofa or two and Abby our bulldog ate quite a few leather boots. Winston our new Dane loves any kind of pillow or blanket, so far he has stayed away from the couch! Luckily our doors have been safe!

Thanks Jackie, Ronnie and Debra. I'm surprised by the iris blooming too but I guess cause I planted them right after I bought them from Lowes and had them in the gh. But the yellow one outside is the real surprise having the weather warm cold and warm every couple of days, confused it. Wish my other ones outside would bloom too, guess maybe in the spring.
