crestedchik, much the same north of the border. Heat emergency declared in Toronto for three days, severe thunderstorm and tornado warning here in Ottawa yesterday (fortunately didn't materialize, although one small town got walloped). Today we have also "cooled off" to the high 70's or low 80's. I'm too lazy to figure out the conversions from metric.

I chose a rotten time to dig up daturas, but was too excited to be rational. The larger buds have been blooming in a rush, fading in the morning, and the stressed out plants have dropped the medium-sized ones. Chalk one up to experience. If I'm lucky the smaller ones will bloom before freeze. If not, there's a good seed pod on one, so I can try again next year.

Janet: I'll have lots of seeds for a bunch of different datura in the fall and you're welcome to lots. Don't panic about the ones you transplanted. You'll have seeds for double purple, innoxia, la fleur lilac and a few more.
