Hi Jessare, I'll send you some sprouted roots that you can plant, if you want them. Need to wait until about April when the shoot up. I planted 3 of the roots last Fall and they took off.

I have bright pink and white ones. Let me know,

Grits - can I get some sprouted roots, too, please?

For starting crepe myrtle seeds, place the seed on the surface of the soil - do not cover. Give plenty of light and keep the room at 70 degrees. Stratifying in the freezer for 6-8 weeks prior to sowing may be necessary.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
